On September 28, 2018, a St. Louis County Judge granted Attorney Kassius Benson’s Motion for Change of Venue in a Duluth, Minnesota murder trial. In State v. Deandre Davenport, Kassius Benson moved for a change of venue due to the voluminous press coverage in this highly-publicized murder trial. The Court agreed with Mr. Benson that the media coverage in Duluth, Minnesota could create prejudice against our client in the eyes of the jury. Motions for change of venue are rarely granted. “The granting of this motion provides the defense with a real opportunity to present our compelling case to an unbiased jury,” said Kassius Benson when he received the court’s order.
