State v. LS

Andrew M. Morgan

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Dismissed.

Description:Client faced 300 years in prison for repeated child sex assault. Crusading prosecutor refused to fairly investigate, and fought to keep the rest of the story from the jury. The truth required piecing together many small, scattered, buried clues, to show the pressures brought to bear on the child by a vindictive step-mother, where the defendant was simply a friend of the birth mother. After more than two years of motions, briefs, oral argument and continuing defense investigation, the judge ruled in our favor. The prosecutor promptly dropped the case.
