Not guilty on all counts at trial

  • Client was charged with indecent exposure after an employee in a local store claimed that he was intentionally exposing himself to another patron in the store.

After reviewing the State's evidence and witness statements, we were able to establish that the grand niece's account of events was not possible or truthful, and that detective investigating the case knew this but still testified falsely to the Grand Jury. As a result, the Court granted our motion to dismiss and the State elected not to re-file charges.
