The defendant offered a female friend a place to stay after she was kicked out of her home. The suspect tried to initiate sex on three occasions and was turned down by his female friend. On the fourth occasion, the parties mutually engaged in foreplay and sex before stopping at the friend’s request. The suspect left for work and the friend filed charges that he had raped her. Officers arrested the defendant on charges of forcible sexual assault and held on $50,000 bond.
RESULT: The defense argued the victim’s history with filing falsified police reports and a four hour time line between the acts of sex and reported raping. The attorney obtained a toxicology report of the victim’s blood and determined her to be under the influence at the time of the filing. The attorney successfully negotiated for all charges to be DROPPED!
