Woodberry “Woody” Bowen now defends criminal cases where once he prosecuted for twelve years. In Robeson County North Carolina Bowen was on the prosecutorial staff of Joe Freeman Britt, the Guinness Book of Records “Deadliest DA”. Joe had more defendants on death row at one time than any other state prosecutor in the country.
Murders are frequent in and near Lumberton, Pembroke, Red Springs, Maxton, Fairmont and all the other little towns across North Carolina’s largest geographical county, Robeson County.
Situated on Interstate 95 North Carolina Highway Patrolmen write enough tickets to put sometimes more than 500 cases in one Robeson County District Courtroom in one day. Others prosecute those cases now, but Woodberry “Woody” Bowen worked those courtrooms for years. There is no substitute for the experience from those years. It provides a certain bond of shared experience with the lawyers who sit in those prosecutor chairs now.
