Joey Turner defended a client in a car crash. He was quoted on WSAV saying, “Obviously we’re disappointed that [our client’s] not out on bond.

Joey Turner was quoted on WTOC regarding his defense of Shacqueal Sanders, one of five defendants and one of two charged with the murder of James Pastures. He said, “We’ve got two things here. We have the murder of Rebecca Foley, and we’ve got the murder of James Pastures two years later. Why are these being tried together? What’s the nexus here? Why is that? And I’ll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, I think, and I believe the evidence will show, the state’s intention here is to blind you and have you look at the forest and get overwhelmed by the number of trees, and ignore each individual tree.”
