He has to vacate the sex conviction. It sounds like he has a good case. Retain the services of an experienced criminal law attorney immediately. He also has a good civil case, at least, it sounds like it. I would need more information to determine this. Law Offices of Theodore Gailan, 36 years of criminal law experience.

Not on Avvo and not based on one scanty legal opinion by any random attorney online. That legal effect requires an attentive legal mind reviewing all crucial factors.
