After the verdict acquitting Mr. Williamson, the judge with more than 40 years experience on the federal bench said the following on the record:
“I've got to note, Mr. Adams, I always thank court-appointed counsel for their services. So I was going to thank you. And I am going to add to that, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a better tried case than you did in this instance, and I congratulate you on it.”
Chris had been asked to accept a court appointment to defend Mr. Williamson and was honored to accept it.
