Client Granted New Trial Post-Conviction

Three years after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire scheme by a Lubbock Jury, Dr. Michael Dixon is granted a new trial by the Amarillo Court of Appeals.

Dr. Michael Dixon was initially represented in the capital case by defense attorneys, Dan Hurley and Frank Sellers. Dixon was convicted in November 2015 of ordering a hit to kill Dr. Joseph Sonnier.

The 7th District Court of Appeals has ordered the judgement of two life-sentences for Dixon to be reversed and remanded for a retrial.
