RESULTS: Sexual Assault Trial – Client charges reduced to misdemeanor assault charge at close of trial.
Client was charged with the sexual assault of an adult where the issue at trial was consent.
Mr. Blizzard defended the case in a six-day-long jury trial.
Mr. Blizzard presented significant evidence that the complainant had lied about several key facts in the case as well as Mr. Blizzard employed an expert SANE nurse to testify that the lack of the injuries presented by the victim was unusual considering the severity of the violence complainant said was used by the Client.
After the jury deliberated for 7.5 hours the jury indicated that they were deadlocked and unable to all agree on a verdict.
Mr. Blizzard took this opportunity to convince the prosecutors in the case that they should offer the Client a misdemeanor assault with time served.
A deal was reached for time served on a misdemeanor with no adverse repercussions to the Client.
