Aggravated Sexual Battery

Oscar G. was charged with sexual battery of a co-worker. The incident was alleged to have occurred within the workplace.

After a 6-day trial, the jury returned hopelessly deadlocked and unable to reach a verdict. A poll of the jury revealed a 7-5 split in favor of an acquittal for Oscar. The court subsequently denied the DA’s request to re-try the matter and granted our motion for dismissal.

Conviction of the sex offense would have resulted in jail-time and lifetime registration as a sex offender for our client.
