Case Dismissed: Juvenile Cleared of Rape Charge

The Scenario: In a juvenile proceeding before the Family Court, a teenager less than 16-years old was accused of raping a classmate.  After obtaining a temporary order of protection against our client, the accuser attacked him at school, followed him home with another boy, and harassed him.  

The Results: We proved the accusations were completely false to the Assistant Corporation Counsel assigned to the case by providing the details of the accuser’s behavior towards our client.  Thereafter, the charges were dropped and the case was dismissed.
