The attorney who won a mistrial in the first Twin Peaks trial no longer wants to be an attorney.
Casie Gotro represented Jacob Carrizal against charges connected to the 2015 deadly Twin Peaks shootings. This case ended in a hung jury almost a year ago.

Gotro says her next step might be to get a counseling license.
