This is Part 22 of our weekly North Carolina Criminal Defense video blog: “What Is Your Most Rewarding Win?“
I’ve had a client who was charged with molesting his daughter. The facts of the case were that the daughter came forward after a significant amount of time and alleged that her father had touched her inappropriately as a child and my client vehemently denied ever having done anything like that.
The mother and father, my client and his wife, were going through a divorce. The mother was pushing the prosecution of that case. Ultimately, he testified and we secured a not guilty.
It was extremely emotional and the level of preparation and detail and sitting with that client and preparing him to testify was probably the most emotional and rewarding verdict that I’ve had as a criminal defense lawyer.
