Description: Cleveland school teacher falsely accused by student of inappropriate touching and indicted for serious sex crimes. Through dogged investigation, aggressive motion practice and a very revealing and bruising (for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District) evidentiary hearing, I was able to show that the "victim" had set up my client and, perhaps even worse, CMSD Safety and Security had conducted a completely incompetent investigation.
