Aggravated Sexual Assault Charge Dismissed

The founder of our firm, Jonathan F. Marshall, was retained by a Hamilton New Jersey man about eight months ago to defend aggravated sexual assault , sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child charges. The arrest occurred after his daughter accused him of digital penetration, fondling, bringing her into the shower and other inappropriate sexual behavior. Our client strenuously denied this conduct.

Sex assault cases are often some of the most contentious that the lawyers at our firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, can defend at the Mercer County Superior Court in Trenton. In this particular case, the father was facing allegations of both a first degree crime punishable by 10-20 years in prison and two second degree crimes that each carried exposure to 5-10 years of incarceration. He would have been required to register as sex offender and comply with Megan’s Law had he been convicted.

Jonathan took a very calculated and organized approach to the defense of the charges. There was considerable evidence that he was able to undercover which contradicted the allegations of the victim. This included therapy records that totally refuted what our client’s daughter was saying. Ultimately, we had the defendant submit to a polygraph from a former supervisor in the New Jersey State Police, which he passed. All of this led to a recant of the allegations by the accuser. The prosecutor’s office reluctantly dismissed the charges early this week after months of efforts. Our client was obvious ecstatic. His unimaginable horror is now over.

If you have been accused of a Sex Crime in Mercer County , you need an accomplished criminal lawyer to defend your case.

Is this a litigator who has actually been in practice as portrayed on his/her website or someone who has been in practice for a limited period. Has he/she even tried a single case before a jury? Ask the tough questions before you invest your money and liberty with someone lacking the credentials to fully protect your interests.
