Tony Scheer, a defense attorney and former prosecutor, said if they weren’t convinced that the man behind the masks was Orr, the jury got it right in acquitting him.
“If you have a situation where a person’s accused of a crime and no one saw their face, no DNA and no fingerprints, it’s almost impossible to imagine getting a guilty verdict,” Scheer said.
Those masked robberies could come back to haunt Orr in a trial on the new charges if prosecutors can show that the new cases are similar to those, Scheer said.
“Was he wearing a mask this time? That would be one of those things that would say this is a common scheme or plan,” Scheer said.
