  • State of Texas v. Nelson

    Practice Area:
    Violent Crime
    Outcome:
    Insufficient evidence/witness not competent/Dismissed
    Description:
    Mr. Nelson was accused of Sexually Assaulting a five year old boy. The accusation was not supported by a physical examination conducted at a local hospital from a medical doctor. It was also shown how the boys statement was tainted by the interviewer at a local child advocacy center on video. I worked on this case for three years and with the help of our outstanding legal team, Judge Duram of Van Zandt County Texas held that the statements of the child were not admissible nor could anything he said be used against my client. This was a very difficult unpopular case that was extremely taxing due to the fact that I was representing an individual that is completely, 100% not guilty of anything. The accusation that someone has had sexually assaulted another is one of the worst crimes to be accused of and most difficult to defend. These accusations are more difficult than murder trials. People need lawyers that have the ability to effectively represent their clients to the best of their ability. If you don't have the stones to stand up to Judges acting like tyrants and district attorneys with a win at all costs agenda you don't need to be practicing criminal law. I find it utterly repulsive how people are sentenced to life on a daily basis due to their attorneys not doing their job. I couldn't live with myself knowing that there was something I could have done that I didn't do that lead someone being incarcerated. There is no way to give someone back the time and stress they had to endure while being accused of a crime or being incarcerated. I truly enjoy helping people wrongly accused and will continue to fight the fight for the greater good of our constitution I am so proud of. Sincerely, Erick Platten
