The Invictus Law Criminal Defense Team, led by Shemeka Hankins, defended our client’s rights in a jury trial in the Portsmouth Circuit Court.

Client was charged with Aggravated Malicious Wounding and Stabbing in the Commission of a Felony for an incident that happened in January of 2022. After deliberating for less than 30 mins, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty. We appreciate the citizens of Portsmouth for finding the just result. We are proud our client retains her freedom and will continue to serve our country in the armed forces.


After less than 10 minutes of deliberation, a Norfolk Circuit Court jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY on a charge of 2nd Degree Murder in the case of a Norfolk resident youth. Our client, now 18 years of age, was arrested and charged as an adult with a crime occurring nearly a year prior when he was a juvenile. Family and friends gathered in the courtroom as our client stood next to his attorney, Brandon K. Fellers, as the verdict was read. Mr. Fellers, a former Chesapeake prosecutor, was confident that the Jury would agree with his legal analysis and arguments and find the youth NOT GUILTY. During the 2 day jury trial, Mr. Fellers exposed the deficits in the government’s case and surgically cross examined witnesses, ultimately securing the NOT GUILTY verdict.
