Criminal Sexual Contact of a Minor

Our client “AD” was charged with inappropriately touching a minor child during a gathering at a friend’s home. AD always maintained his innocence. Needless to say, a conviction on these serious felony charges would have had a devastating effect on AD’s life. He faced the certain prospect of prison time and mandatory sex offender registration for the rest of his life. After thorough and exhaustive investigation and preparation, the case against AD went to trial in Silver City, New Mexico on July 31, 2018. The following day the jury unanimously found AD not guilty on both charges. AD was able to keep his freedom, his family and his job as a result.
