After a Jury trial, our client was convicted of Child Molestation and Indecent Exposure to a minor under fifteen years old.  The trial court sentenced him to a fifteen-year term of imprisonment followed by lifetime probation.  We were not the trial attorneys.

We were retained to do the appeal.  We argued that the prosecutor’s expert profiled our client by suggesting that because our client had certain characteristics, a jury should conclude that our client committed the crime.  We won the appeal and the Court of Appeals reversed the conviction.  The Court of Appeals published the case, which means that the case in the new law/precedent.
