In the small city of Binghamton in upstate New York, 23-year-old Veronica Taft, a single mother with four small children, all under the age of five, was convicted of Murder and Manslaughter for the brutal murder of her two-year-old son Lyric. She was sentenced to 25-years-to-life in state prison, with her surviving children taken away and placed in foster care.

After more than five years in prison, Taft was set free after a bombshell Appellate Court decision found the verdict was against the weight of the evidence. The court overturned the theory and evidence used by authorities, including time-of-death, Taft's alibi, and controversial testimony of a desperate jail-house snitch.

Working on behalf of Taft, Defense Investigator, David M. Beers conducted an independent investigation. In his account, Immunity for Murder, he'll guide you through the ill-fated police investigation and the shameful prosecution that, contrary to the evidence, quickly turned the tides towards Veronica and away from the real killer. This book will look closely at the suspect, bizarre events, and disturbing facts never before revealed. Furthermore, it'll show how the evidence proves Taft's innocence, which is why he considers her story a tragic miscarriage of justice.

About the Author

David M. Beers holds a Bachelor of Professional Studies Degree from Empire State College. Previously, he served six-years in the United States Marine Corps. Thereafter, received an honorable discharge at the rank of Staff-Sergeant. Thereafter, Beers became a sworn member of the New York State Police. As a trooper, he excelled in his regular duties and became a police instructor. Later, helping to develop, implement and teach a state-wide highway drug-interdiction program. After being promoted to the rank of Investigator, Beers received additional training and experience and served in several specialized venues, including narcotics, major crimes, violent felony warrants, and forensics. Where he attained experience and proficiency in several forensic disciplines including, evidence collection and preservation, crime-scene investigation, fingerprints, arson awareness, fire cause and origin and blood stain/pattern analysis. Over several years receiving numerous commendations, while routinely maintaining excellent and/or outstanding performance evaluations. Beers' career in law enforcement ended prematurely as the result of what later became known as the, New York State Police, Troop 'C' evidence tampering scandal. Beers, who was initially cleared of any wrong doing was later falsely accused of a host of crimes related to his work as a police officer. After a two-year legal battle, including two trials, he was exonerated of all criminal charges. But despite his complete exoneration, Beers was fired from his position as a police officer. Even though his law-enforcement career had been ripped away, his training and experience had not. Over the next two years, Beers transitioned his training and experience into the private sector and became a licensed private investigator. With his combined experience as a Marine, police officer, defendant, and now as a private investigator, Beers developed a unique perspective of the criminal justice system. Thereafter, starting his own investigation and consulting business he justly named; New Perspective Investigations. Where he continues working today.
