00-0752-CR State v. Ledford

Minnesota Lawyer//July 2, 2001

William Ledford appeals a judgment of the circuit court convicting him of perjury based on his testimony during the preliminary hearing for charges against Raul Rodriguez and requiring Ledford to reimburse Dodge County for the cost of his third court-appointed attorney. Because we conclude that Ledford’s confession that he committed perjury during the preliminary hearing is the only evidence of his guilt, and because the confession was insufficiently corroborated, there is insufficient evidence to sustain the jury verdict. Therefore we reverse the judgment of conviction. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.

Dist IV, Dodge County, Storck, J., Roggensack, J.


For Appellant: Timothy R. Roellig, Madison

For Respondent: Patricia A. Ramirez, Juneau; Gregory M. Posner-Weber, Madison
