In November of 2015, Colby Messer and three friends flew from British Columbia to Denver for a Denver Broncos game. The night before the NFL game, several of the friends met a woman who flirted with them and walked with them back to their hotel room. The men later returned to Canada without incident. Five months later, Colby returned to the United States. He was stopped in Las Vegas, jailed, and told he was facing six charges for sexual assault in Denver. Even though attorneys are bound by their privilege with their clients, Colby took the unusual step of asking his legal team to break that confidentiality to tell his story. Thanks for listening.

Great presentation of an incredible story

This podcast gives powerful insight into a truly disturbing story. Most of the publicity surrounding sexual assault prosecution is focused on cases like the one from Stanford. This series shows the other side that sometimes exists, where innocent people go through hell trying to clear their names. Ken, the narrator and lead defense attorney, did a great job breaking down this captivating story and dealing with a very disturbing subject matter. Five stars!

As good as Serial

If you loved Serial, you'll love this podcast too. Instead of the perspective of a neutral reporter, Trial Team Notes is told by the lead attorney on the accused's defense team. As well-told and as suspenseful as Serial, having the defense attorney as narrator lets the listener learn not just what the truth is, but the strategy that goes into how to present the truth in court in order to win a favorable verdict.

Fascinating and well-told

This podcast is extremely compelling, and provides insights into the thought processes and dilemmas faced by a real trial team. The story shows how we should all be skeptical of sensational headlines and how events may not be as they initially seem. What an ordeal this guy went through!
