Sexual Assault

After having consensual sex with his girlfriend, our client was charged with sexual assault of a child — only because their ages were 9 months outside the statutory range. The district attorney’s office wanted to prosecute because they felt the client influenced his girlfriend, but investigation showed that the opposite was the case. This information was presented to the district attorney to provide to the grand jury for consideration, and a Grand Jury ultimately No Billed and declined to indict our client.
