Jennifer C. Holt, circuit judge, will hold a Prosecutorial Sanctions Hearing on May 11 in the Madison County Courthouse, after a motion was filed by Melvin Johnson because the District Attorney's Office had allegedly concealed evidence in order to convict him.
Randy Dill, Assistant District Attorney, dismissed all charges against Johnson after several motions that alleged conceling evidence from Johnson.
Johnson is an Atlanta attorney that was arrested in 2015 and charges with possession of a forged instrument. The state said that Johnson illegally used the bar number of an Alabama attorney, Lonzo Robinson, without knowledge or permission.
Johnson maintains that he was called to Alabama to defend a young woman who was allegedly raped in Huntsville Hospital. The alleged victim's family connected Johnson with Robinson and they agreed to work together.
