MD Criminal Defense Strategy
The Charge: Sexual Assault of a Minor
After my client ended a relationship with his girlfriend, in which my client was main source of income, the girlfriend went to the police and accused my client, a 28-year-old man, of having sexual intercourse with her 8-year-old daughter.
Defense Strategy: During cross examination, the court learned that though the alleged sexual abuse encounter was supposed to have lasted for an hour, the child was not hurt, felt no pain, suffered no bleeding, and did not cry. She did not cry or run away when the alleged encounter was interrupted, instead she played outside with friends.
Result: My client was found NOT GUILTY of child sexual abuse
