Case Conclusion Date: November 1, 2000
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: No Billed by Bastrop County Grand Jury
Description: Mr. Frank represented a client charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child in April 1999 in Bastrop County. He hired a Polygraph Examiner who found that the defendant showed no deception in answering questions about the charges. He brought in a forensic psychologist specializing in child sex cases. The psychologist produced a report which favored the client's innocence claim. Mr. Frank consulted with CPS workers and obtained records showing the propensity of the complaining witness to fabricate. He obtained additional information from the complainant's treating physicians which helped challenge the state's allegation of abuse. Mr. Frank had on-going discussions with the Assistant District Attorney handling the case with a strategy that ultimately prevailed. RESULT: THE CASE WAS NO BILLED BY GRAND JURY.
