Sexual Assault Charges Dropped - Felonies and Misdemeanors
Client was visited by detectives because a young female claimed he had had sexual relations with her. She alleged he set up the rendezvous via texting her and e-messaging her. We refused an interview with the detectives. We refused to turn over his phone without a warrant. The detectives could not verify her allegations with her phone. They obtained a subpoena and obtained his phone information from the provider. We continually pressed the detectives that our client never had any relations with her and any texting was innocuous as she was a distant niece. DCF interviewed the victim and determined the assault occurred. The detectives approached the State for a warrant. We contacted the State and presented our facts. The State refused to issue the warrant. Case was closed.
