Prosecutors ask court to keep Modesto defense attorney, 4 co-defendants in jail

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Prosecutors are asking a judge to deny bail to a Modesto defense attorney and four co-defendants when they return Tuesday for their continued arraignment. They argue that releasing the five charged with murder would give them the opportunity to carry out threats against witnesses.

Defense attorney Frank Carson is accused of orchestrating a criminal conspiracy that resulted in the death of Korey Kauffman, 26, and the cover-up of his murder.

Attorneys for the defendants call this a case of malicious prosecution: an attempt to eliminate a successful criminal defense attorney who has been a staunch critic of the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office. Carson unsuccessfully ran for district attorney last year, directing voters’ attention to what he called public corruption in police agencies throughout the county.
