Investigation Leads to Mercy for Sex Offender
George Parnham represented a defendant who was on probation for sexual assault to a child, who was charged with the sexual assault of a 2nd child, placing the defendant in jeopardy of a life sentence.
Our Investigation Reveals Lies
Our investigation determined that the complaining witness had been encouraged by her aunt to make the allegations. Our interview with the complainant revealed that she wanted to recant her testimony. Parnham utilized the information developed during our investigation to avoid a trial and obtain a 10 year sentence for the defendant. The defendant was charged with aggravated sexual assault.
RESULT BASED ON INVESTIGATION: Life Sentence Avoided, Sentence of 10 Years
