Case Result: Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct

Jason's client was charged with one count of Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct after an alleged incident that occurred in a college dorm room. The seriousness of the charge carried with it the potential for Jason's client to spend several years of his young life in prison.

Jason carefully studied the multiple statements law enforcement took from the alleged victim, as well as statements from both his client and other witnesses. Jason noted key inconsistencies between the statements and, during trial, highlighted these differences to the jury. During closing arguments, Jason physically demonstrated the encounter as described by the alleged victim to show the improbability of the alleged conduct. The jury returned a not guilty verdict.

Jason's questioning and arguments at trial led to an acquittal that saved his client from ever serving a day in prison. Jason's client is also immediately eligible to have all records of this case expunged (sealed).
