The firm recently won two separate jury trials in two different metro counties. Firm attorneys John Leunig and Justin Duffy obtained full acquittals for two separate clients who had been falsely accused of criminal sexual conduct.
Both cases involved claims of nonconsensual sexual activity by the accuser, that the firm’s clients stated were entirely consensual. One case involved allegations by a woman that a client had been on a date with. The other case involved allegations by a client’s ex-girlfriend, one of which involved an allegation that threats were made with a knife.
The firm’s attorneys thoroughly cross examined the accusers and other witnesses, and called attention to inconsistencies in the accusers’ allegations. After hard fought trials, the jurors in both cases acquitted the clients of all charges.
First degree criminal sexual conduct cases can carry of presumptive sentence of 12 years or more if convicted and would also require predatory offender registration. The firm’s painstaking preparation and litigation of the cases resulted in complete acquittals of both clients, avoiding these life altering consequences.
