Brian Blades

In 1996, a jury found former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Brian Blades guilty of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of his cousin, Charles Blades. However, three days later, the presiding judge overturned the verdict, citing the prosecution failed to provide enough evidence for conviction. An appellate court upheld his acquittal.
