FORT WORTH - A former Fort Worth police officer who served 21 years for the rape of a child took a step toward freedom Thursday morning. And, he hopes, a step toward clearing his name. Brian Franklin's shoes waited so long for this walk, one sole fell off as he emerged from a Tarrant County probation office out into bright sunshine. He raised his hands and shouted, "Freedom!"

Franklin didn't care about his feet. He finally had his family. His 82-year-old mother clung to his arm. "She's not letting go," said Brian's brother, Paul Franklin.

Neal Davis' client free on bond after conviction reversed due to unfair trial

A former Fort Worth police officer convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl has been freed after serving 21 years of a life sentence, but prosecutors plan to retry him. Brian Franklin, 56, posted $10,000 bail Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

"We are headed to a new trial," Tarrant County prosecutor Bill Vassar told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "If the defense would like to plead, we will consider that." The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled last month that Franklin's conviction should be thrown out because his accuser later admitted that she lied during his 1995 trial.

Neal Davis gets client a new trial after receiving a life sentence in 1995

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas' highest criminal court has ordered a new trial for a former Fort Worth police officer convicted of rape after his alleged victim admitted that she lied during his trial. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled Wednesday that Brian Franklin did not receive a fair trial in 1995 when he was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl and given a life sentence.

Now in her 30s, the alleged victim testified two years ago that she lied in part of her testimony, but she stood by her accusation that Franklin raped her in her father's backyard. The court ordered Franklin be placed in local custody while authorities decide whether to prosecute him again. A spokeswoman for the Tarrant County district attorney declined to comment.

He focused on listening and helping, not just explaining his fees
Client needed representation for a child sex abuse case that was complex and needed an attorney who understood the full extent of the law.

" Neal represented our son and the case against him was dismissed, while other attorneys we consulted primarily focused on explaining their fees and pushed us to settle. Neal took time to understand our needs and truly appreciate our values and to convey to the Court, the District Attorney and the Judge the true essence of the case details and the circumstances of how our son was himself victimized, versus treating us as another case. He saw the case through to the utmost extent of the law, so our son, who is an honor student, was completely exonerated, and he made sure that support and professional help were in place during the experience. He declined the court's offer of a 2-year probation and pushed harder with the D.A. even though we had already paid him his fees. Most attorneys would have simply walked away at that point; however, Neal wasn't satisfied with the results and had the case reset since he knew it was not a fair result for my son. In the end, the case was dismissed. "

Got my life back
Positive outcome in online solicitation case

" Words cant express how grateful i am for having Neil on my side. I was involved in a police sting for online solicitation. When i though my life was over i contacted Neil. He told me he would do everything he could to get me out of my situation. He kept me up to date and answered when i called. In the end my case ended with a no bill and i can finally start living my life again."

He doesn't give up, no matter what you're up against
Client's child sex abuse case was dismissed

" This man saved my life from false imprisonment. Neal's belief in 'liberty and justice for all' as laid out in the Constitution of the United States, and especially as that principle relates to constitutional rights regarding the receipt of a fair trial, coupled with his refusal to quit fighting, are attributes of a noble spirit and a man of high character. When I interviewed Neal to defend me against very serious false accusations and criminal charges that followed, his candor about what I was up against and his real interest in my general welfare made choosing him to defend me a 'no brainer.' Hiring Neal after hearing Dick DeGuerin say 'Neal is a real fighter' was the best decision I could have made and this was after interviewing a number of attorneys. He cares about people, truth, and justice; an attorney who will not give up; a man who will defend the rights of anyone accused of a crime with every fiber of his being to ensure fairness and the protection of our legal rights."
