First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges Declined (2018)

First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges Declined (2018)

In 2017, our client (J.O.), a veteran in the Marines, was investigated for First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct charges after his former girlfriend accused him of sexually assaulting her. If charged and convicted, J.O. would have faced a presumptive commitment to prison of 144 months. J.O. retained the Law Offices of Ryan Garry, who conducted a thorough investigation into the alleged victim, had J.O. successfully submit to and complete a polygraph examination, and provided the resulting investigation and polygraph examination to the investigating detective and prosecuting attorney who was reviewing the case. After discussion, the County Attorney’s Office decided to decline charging.
