A Vanderburgh County jury returned a not guilty verdict in the trial of Trenton McCorkle, 23, after 25 minutes of deliberation, according to a release from McCorkle's attorneys Barry Blackard and Dennis Brinkmeyer.
”The jury reached the only possible verdict it could have reached," Blackard said in an e-mail to the Courier & Press. "This case was a tragedy and a disgrace from the very beginning. The University of Evansville rushed to judgment and somehow managed to bring the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office along for the ride.”
