RAPE CHARGES DROPPED AFTER EXTENSIVE INVESTIGATION
Commonwealth v. K.H.
This was a very difficult case. Our client was accused of sexual misconduct from years in the past. Based on the charges, he was facing up to life in prison. We were confident based on our assessment of the evidence that our client was innocent. Part of our investigation included recording telephone conversations that proved crucial in confirming that the accusations were frivolous. We worked with an experienced prosecutor who knew that the case was crumbling and all charges were dropped.

Our client was charged under the so called "revenge pornography" law. Our client had a different attorney in lower court and was convicted and received jail time.

We set the case for a jury trial. In the end the prosecution dropped all charges without a trial, and our client avoided the possibility of life in prison.
NOT GUILTY OF RAPE AFTER JURY TRIAL. LESS THAN 30 MiNUTE DELIBERATION

The prosecution was not willing to give up easily. We took the case to a jury trial.

Our client walked away a free man instead of facing 5 to life in prison.
NOT GUILTY OF SEXUAL BATTERY AFTER JURY TRIAL

Our client was found not guilty and avoided being a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.
