RAPE CHARGE DROPPED AFTER EXTENSIVE INVESTIGATION AND MOTIONS

Our client was a college student accused of rape. His case received enormous media exposure indicating that the evidence against him was overwhelming. He was thrown in jail and faced the possibility of life in prison. Needless to say, he was terrified. We worked tirelessly to uncover evidence that was never reviewed by the police.  That evidence led us to a key witness who had never been interviewed. In the end, we were successful in proving that our client was the victim of a terrible false accusation. We were incredibly excited when his charge was dropped, and we're currently working to have his record completely expunged so that he can move forward with his life.  

COMMONWEALTH V. S.Y.

FELONY BENCH TRIAL

NOT GUILTY RAPE AFTER JURY TRIAL

Our client was charged with rape based on the claim of a co-worker.  He was held without bond and was extremely scared. A sexual assault nurse examiner claimed that the woman had suffered blunt force trauma. First we fought to get our client out of jail on bond. Then we worked with our own sexual assault nurse examiner to prove that the conclusion of blunt force trauma was false. The prosecution was not willing to give up easily. We took the case to a jury trial. After two days of fighting for our client, the jury deliberated for less than thirty minutes before returning a not guilty verdict.  Our client walked away a free man instead of facing 5 to life in prison.

FELONY JURY TRIAL 

NOT GUILTY SEXUAL BATTERY AFTER JURY TRIAL

Our client was charged with sexually assaulting the teenage daughter of his neighbor.  The prosecution was insistent that any plea offer include a conviction that would force our client to register as a sex offender.  We took the case to a jury trial.  We successfully used school records to show that the girl had told wildly different versions of her story to school officials.  Our client was found not guilty and avoided being a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.  

COMMONWEALTH V. L.C.

MISDEMEANOR JURY TRIAL

RAPE AND OBJECT SEXUAL PENETRATION CHARGES DROPPED PRIOR TO TRIAL

Our client was charged with rape. He sat in jail for three weeks after being told by another attorney that "nobody gets bond in rape cases." We took over the case and put on a lengthy bond hearing that resulted in him being released. We worked with a sexual assault nurse examiner who was able to demonstrate that the woman's injuries were completely consistent with consensual intercourse. When our client refused to plead guilty, the prosecution used all of their power and leverage and indicted on more charges. With our help, our client stood his ground. 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.  

COMMONWEALTH V. D.C.

FELONY JURY TRIAL 

RAPE CHARGE DROPPED AFTER EXTENSIVE INVESTIGATION AND MOTIONS

Our client was facing the possibility of life in prison after an accusation of rape following a night of heavy partying. During the course of our investigation, we uncovered that the complaining witness had previously made a false rape allegation. That was the turning point in the case. A hearing was scheduled to determine the admissibility of the prior false allegation. Before the motions arguments, the prosecution conceded that their case was falling apart and agreed to drop all charges.

NOT GUILTY ROBBERY AND GRAND LARCENY AFTER BENCH TRIAL
