Nicholas Williams Accepts the Case of Scott Perry

Nicholas Williams, a principal litigation attorney in the offices of KesslerWilliams, has accepted the case of Scott Perry, the fourth person to die in the St. Louis City Justice Center within the past eighteen months.

Mr. Williams, who has heretofore limited his practice to the defense of those accused of serious felony offenses, sees no contradiction in this representation.

“Justice is justice,” Nicholas Williams said. “The tendency to portray those as less than human is unfair. The State and the City enter into a social contract with those who have maintained their innocence, and part of that obligation is to be transparent in the way in which they are treated while in custody.”

As the Post-Dispatch has reported, Mr. Perry went from feeling ill at one point to arriving unresponsive at SLU Hospital hours later, where he was pronounced dead.

KesslerWilliams will continue to pursue this matter in conjunction with lead counsel, Reiad Khouri, of the Khouri Law Firm.
