“Sexting” Charges Against U.S. Marine Dismissed Mid-Trial

Our firm represented a young Marine who had met a woman online whom he believed was an adult.  Unbeknownst to him, she was actually a minor.  The two exchanged numerous messages, including suggestive photographs and videos.  After the young woman’s mother discovered her phone and the messages, our client was charged with sending lewd material to a minor and other, related charges.  As a result of Emily Dahm’s thorough cross-examination of the young woman during the jury trial, the government dismissed all of the charges against the client.
