State v. RW, (Rockingham County-2010):
We represented this 61-year-old grandfather who was charged with two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault and two counts of Felonious Sexual Assault on his 7-year-old granddaughter. The two aggravated charges each carried a maximum sentence of 10-20 years in State Prison. The other two charges each carried a maximum sentence of 3½ – 7 years in State Prison. RW, who had a criminal record, but no prior sexual assault convictions, would have spent the better part of the rest of his life in State Prison if convicted. After a three-day trial, the jury found RW not guilty of all charges.
Result: Not Guilty
