Dismissal of Sexual Battery Charge
On behalf of Randall & Stump, PLLC in Sex Crimes on Tuesday, June 26, 2018
Our client was accused of sexually assaulting a co-worker after a night out drinking. Our client and the woman returned to the home where the client was housesitting. After having another drink, one thing led to another and our client attempted to kiss the woman. After being told “no,” our client did not take things further and the woman left. Almost three years later, prior to the statute of limitations tolling, she filed sexual battery charges against the client, which would have required him to register as a sex offender if he were convicted. After our Charlotte sex crimes lawyers spoke with witnesses and gathered stories that conflicted with her allegations, we presented them to the prosecutor. As a result, the state offered to dismiss the charge of sexual battery and permit our client to do a deferred prosecution on a charge of simple assault. If he complies, that charge, too, will be dismissed.
