Daniel Workman is a respected author, researcher and expert on global exports. His expertise has been referenced by publications like the Wall Street Journal and Business Week.
Workman filed his direct appeal before the Ohio Court of Appeals with multiple claims of error, but his primary contention was that his counsel was ineffective – specifically failing to contact Sherry Wilkerson and Timothy Osborne.
Early Life and Education
Dan Workman was known for prioritizing family over all else. A loving husband and father, he made sure his daughters always had time with him – becoming someone many of their peers wished they had instead.
He established his own construction company from scratch on 10 hill country acres in Western Travis County. Over time he constructed everything from small residential homes to commercial structures.
Workman raised several claims of relief in his direct appeal to the Ohio Court of Appeals. His primary claim was that he had been denied effective assistance of counsel due to his attorney failing to subpoena Sherry Wilkerson and Timothy Osborne, two people with him when they left Mike’s Hide-Away Tavern at 3:00 a.m. the night of his arrest; their testimony would have directly contradicted that given by officers as well as provided possible alternative explanations for their behavior.
Workman currently chairs Augustana University Theatre Department and teaches directing, acting and script analysis to students. In addition, he manages a professional theatre company which tours schools as well as producing a summer stock season in Custer State Park. Workman brings decades of experience to these operations – academic as well as touring theatre.
Wilkerson and Osborne testified that Workman was initially taken into the bar by unidentified police officers who did not identify themselves, who also threw and kicked him outside before taking him inside.
Workman has been writing research pieces on request for his global audience since 2006. He has covered topics ranging from international inkjet sales to richest countries for print magazines; additionally, he has provided comprehensive coverage on export data via leading online news services.
Achievement and Honors
Workman has recorded over four albums during his career and earned many accolades and awards. Additionally, he served on various boards of several organizations such as the Recording Academy Texas Chapter Advisory Council and Grammy Producers and Engineer’s Wing Advisory Council.
He has served on the boards of the Greater Chaska Chamber of Commerce, Minneapolis Rotary Club and Knights of Columbus. Additionally, he is an active member of Guardian Angels Catholic Church as well as numerous community events.
He is also an active military veteran. During World War II he participated in the Battle of the Bulge – one of the major military campaigns lasting a month which marked the first time significant US casualties occurred during one single military operation.
Workman was married twice and had two children during his lifetime, leaving behind one wife in Sharon Workman and one son, Robert Daniel Workman; as well as one brother and two sisters.
Workman was met by men wearing the garb of law enforcement officials he later identified as police. These individuals took possession of his money and gun, seizing both of which they used against him while repeatedly striking his face against a wall. Gunnoe tried to come outside but was told by them not to come outside at that moment.
Gunnoe and Wilkerson declined to testify at Workman’s trial, even though his attorney subpoenaed them; instead they exercised their constitutional right not to speak out in front of the press.
Over his career, he has earned over one million dollars in salary. Additionally, he owns a construction company which assists clients in building, remodeling and restoring investment properties. Recently featured on Netflix’s Emmy-nominated documentary Last Chance U.
He is an award-winning author of several books on education administration and philosophy. His book The Intentional Implications: Effects of Reducing Mind is published by University Press of America and can be found in over 95 libraries around the country.
