Court: MissCo Teen Can't Replace Lawyer Due to "Lack of Rapport"

FEBRUARY 23, 2006 - Posted at 3:49 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Mississippi County teenager convicted of shooting and killing a man in a revenge attack has lost a request for a new attorney that had been filed with the Arkansas Supreme Court.

Julius Yankaway was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life imprisonment for a 2002 shooting.  He claimed he lacked an "exemplary rapport" with his current lawyer and that the lawyer has not consulted with him enough.

Yankaway was 15 at the time of the shooting.

The court wrote that an accused person is "not guaranteed a meaningful attorney-client relationship or an exemplary rapport with his appointed attorney."
