Type of case/Charge(s): Sexual Battery (Victim 12-18), DCF Dependency Proceedings
Summary: Client was accused and arrested for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a minor. As the allegation pertained to a family member, DCF also initiated proceedings. Longwell Lawyers did not just wait to defend our client. Our firm worked with an investigator who was able to obtain exculpatory information. We proactively worked to convince the prosecution and DCF that the allegation was false and should not be pursued. As a result, the State chose not to file any charges and dropped the case. DCF chose not to file a Petition for Dependency.
Result: All charges and proceedings were dropped
