Rape and 22 Other Felony Charges
Outcome: Client Pled Guilty to One Count of Accessory After the Fact
Client was arrested and arraigned on 23 felony charges ranging from assault, battery, and rape after an intimate partner claimed that consensual intercourse was not consensual. The Nieves Law Firm was able to secure a dismissal of 22 of the 23 charges at a preliminary hearing, resulting in the client pleading no contest to one charge of PC 32 (Accessory After the Fact) which is not sexual or violent in nature. Client was also immediately released from custody.
DVRO + Sexual Battery
Client was accused of felony sexual battery and was served with a summons for a Restraining Order by client’s ex-partner. The Restraining Order was ultimately dismissed after we filed a detailed response to counter each of Petitioner’s accusations and criminal charges were rejected.
Client, a juvenile, was accused of sexual assault by another minor. The client and client’s family were distraught at the seriousness of these charges and how a conviction would affect the client’s future. We defended client against a Restraining Order by the parents of the alleged “victim”, which was ultimately dismissed. Thus, our client’s reputation was saved, the client’s future was unobstructed, and no expulsion from school took place. Criminal charges were not filed and matter was certified as detention only.
