Clients come to me when they learn they are being investigated by the police. I then contact the police and tell them not to speak with the client. They can, however, speak with me, which allows me to present the client’s side of the story before the officer decides to ask for an arrest warrant or not.
A young man was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a bathroom at a party. The criminal code for this is 53a-70, which carries a mandatory minimum of ten year’s imprisonment.
The investigating detective asked for my client’s side of the story, and I was able to convey that he turned her down, and she got angry. She had also sexted him before the party, and I was able to pass those texts and images to the officer, along with texts from the time from others at the party who said she was angry that he wouldn’t have sex with her.
The charges were dropped.
This happened in 2023.
If you learn you are being investigated, REMAIN SILENT! Do not talk to anyone, and call me immediately.
