C&N’s client was accused by a former student of sexually assaulting him 20 years earlier. He claimed, in part, that he had repressed memories of the “assaults.” He had saved about 30 letters that our client had written him, and our client struggled during an interrogation due to coercive police tactics. Mary and Takura led the trial team that challenged the six counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree. Numerous pretrial motions were filed and a detailed and thorough investigation occurred, including interviewing numerous witnesses and going to the scene for photographs and video to disprove the allegations. After two weeks of trial, the jury returned a twelve-word verdict—not guilty across the board!!
