Sexual Assault of Child

RESULTS: Minimum sentence in Sexual Assault of a Child

Navigating the legal system is never easy, especially when facing serious charges. But with the right strategy and support, justice can be served fairly. We’re pleased to announce a significant legal victory for our client, who received the minimum sentence allowed by law after pleading guilty.

Case Overview

This case revolved around a deeply sensitive and complex issue—the Sexual Assault of a Child. Our client was charged with conduct that occurred when he was between 13 to 15 years old, but the allegations only came to light after he had reached adulthood. Despite the passage of time, our client was certified to stand trial as an adult and confessed to the offense under police interrogation.

Our Approach

Understanding the gravity of the situation, we worked tirelessly to construct a comprehensive mitigation plan aimed at reducing our client’s sentence. Here’s a breakdown of the steps we took:

Confession and Guilt Plea:
Our client acknowledged his actions and chose to plead guilty, allowing us to focus on presenting a case for leniency.
Action Plan for Mitigation:
We collaborated closely with our client to develop a detailed action plan that demonstrated his commitment to making better choices.
Character Evidence:
During the one-day sentencing trial, we presented evidence that our client had lived a life free of crime since the incident.
Expert Testimony:
We retained a forensic psychologist who specializes in sex offenses. Their expert testimony highlighted that our client was not a danger to society and posed a very low risk of re-offending.

The Outcome

Thanks to this carefully crafted defense, the trial judge assessed our client’s punishment as the minimum possible sentence. This outcome was a testament to the effectiveness of a well-planned legal strategy and the importance of presenting thorough and compelling evidence.
