Doyle’s attorney, Dan Cogdell, believed his client was innocent upon their first meeting. Doyle, along with 10 other Branch Davidians, faced murder and conspiracy charges in the deaths of four federal agents who raided the Waco compound. They were all acquitted.
Doyle “didn’t know an air gun from a BB gun,” said Cogdell. “It took me about 30 seconds to see he was innocent… He couldn’t spell conspiracy, much less be a part of one.”
