After a three-day trial in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland, before the Honorable Gary E. Bair, a jury acquitted our client of all charges placed against him by the State’s Attorney’s Office for Montgomery County, Maryland. The Complaining Witness had waited at least 17 years before disclosing to the authorities allegations of sexual misconduct against our client. There was a significant issue of the Defendant’s right to have the charges presented to a Grand Jury in a timely fashion and thereby affording him a speedy trial and opportunity to adequately defend himself. The State was unable to prove that our client was guilty of any of the charges in the Indictment. Our client was quite elderly and if convicted would have suffered significant imprisonment, which would have been physically and mentally devastating to a person of his age. Our client at all times protested his innocence and the vindication was magnificent! Kudos and a loud golf clap to my office staff and Abigail Scott, as well as, co-counsel, David Krum.
