Independent Investigation Ends with Rape Charge Dismissal

On behalf of Randall & Stump, PLLC in Sex Crimes on Thursday, August 30, 2018

We were recently contacted by a man’s wife after her husband was arrested on rape charges. Apparently, the man had met a woman on a dating site and after meeting for coffee, the two went back to her house where they engaged in sex. There was no denying they had relations, but the issue of consent was paramount. After she accused him, the man gave a statement to police, and he quickly found himself facing a possible 25-year prison sentence.

Once retained, our attorneys conducted an independent investigation. We uncovered several inconsistencies in the woman’s version of events and learned that she was still on the same dating site with other profiles, where she was actively trying to conceal her identity. By presenting our findings before the trial began, we effectively convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charges. Our client, therefore, saw no adverse repercussions and was saved from a life-shattering prison sentence.
