• Criminal: Man Acquitted of Forcible Sodomy and Statutory Sodomy

  • My client was charged with these two counts and was facing life in prison.  Notably the complaining witness made similar allegations against another individual a year earlier, and I was able to bring that evidence in under a recent appellate case ruling.  After cross-examination of her concerning this and inconsistencies in her story, my client was acquitted.  Because the only punishment was a prison term, the Court ordered the State of Missouri to pay my client thousands of dollars in court and deposition costs.  The Missouri Attorney General's office prosecuted this case.
