Abbe D. Lowell was mentioned in the June 30 and July 1 issues of The Biloxi Sun Herald in an article regarding Paul Minor, a Biloxi lawyer who filed an appeal of his judicial bribery conviction with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Minor was acquitted of some charges during his 2005 trial, with a hung jury on others, but a conviction came after a second trial in 2007. "Much had changed from the 2005 trial that resulted in acquittals and a mistrial to the 2007 trial that resulted in a hasty conviction and a significant sentence. This appeal addresses these changes - a series of constitutional, evidentiary, legal and sentencing errors by the district court that ultimately resulted in an unlawful conviction and sentence that cannot stand," Mr. Lowell, Minor's lead defense lawyer, and members of the Firm wrote in the appeal.
