The Cochran Firm is absolutely hands down the best law firm I have ever dealt with. They were professional, understanding and cared about me as a client. I could call my attorney anytime and they were there to assist me. If you are looking for a professional attorney, whether it’s criminal or personal injury, I would give The Cochran Firm the highest recommendations ever. They assisted me, and often people who I have recommended to them, for personal injury cases. They made sure that we have all gotten the absolute best outcomes. Great job.

The Ron Settles Case (Continued)
The official police story was that Settles was pulled over for driving 47 mph in a 25-mph zone. Officer Brown claimed that as he approached Settles’ vehicle he became “loud and obnoxious” and refused to get out of the vehicle. He further alleged that, after calling for backup, Settles pulled out a nine-inch knife. After Settles surrendered, they alleged that they found a “cocaine kit” consisting of a spoon, razor, plastic card, and a small vial containing cocaine residue. They first said the kit was found “around” his car, but later said they found it in the trunk.
The officers took him to Signal Hill police station, where they charged him with failing to produce ID, possession of cocaine, resisting arrest, and assaulting an officer. The police said that Settles initially declined his legally entitled phone call but phoned his mother an hour later who immediately made arrangements to post bail. Prior to posting bail, the police alleged that at 2:35 P.M. an officer went to Settles’ cell where he found him hanging from the bars with a mattress cover around his neck.
This is the second part of a multi-part retelling of the Ron Settles case that Johnnie Cochran handled in the 1980’s. Keep an eye out for part two of this story. In the meantime, you can read more about Johnnie’s legacy at bit.ly/3l1bHaR.
