Child Abuse – Dismissed

In a high-profile case, clients were charged with abusing their teenage sons by using a hike along a trail as punishment for their misbehavior. Mr. Lahann pushed back hard against the District Attorney’s Office, rejecting any plea to lesser charges. Mr. Lahann provided the DA’s Office with comments in the “Sound Off” section of the Las Cruces Sun-News, as well as Facebook comments, demonstrating wide community support for our clients’ actions.

Ultimately the District Attorney’s Office agreed that charges could not be sustained and filed a Nolle Prosequi – a dismissal – of all charges against both clients.
