Hung Jury and then Dismissal for Engineer Charged with Child Molest

A retired engineer and church elder was accused of inappropriately touching a female child at a church.  Initially, it was not clear why the young woman fabricated the allegations against our client.  After a thorough examination of the named victim’s phone records, and discovery of critical surveillance footage close to trial, the reasons for the false allegations emerged.  Numerous young women who had grown up in the same church testified on behalf of the client and his good character.  After several days of jury deliberations, the ten jurors who had been convinced of the client’s innocence were unable to convince the two jurors who refused to change their vote on guilt and the trial resulted in a hung jury.  The prosecution later dismissed all the charges against the client.
