Felony Sexting Case Dismissed
The Wisconsin Attorney General's Office recently declined felony charges against our client in a local sexting scandal among area teens. Authorities began investigating the case of wide-spread sexting at an area high school. Several students were formally charged with crimes in circuit court for their actions. In this case, Attorney Verhoff met with the assistant attorney general assigned to handle all of the prosecutions prior to our client being charged. Unlike most of the other individuals in this case, who formally faced charges in court, Attorney Verhoff brokered an agreement with the AG's Office in which no charges were formally filed against our client. Instead, the client was required to complete a deferred prosecution agreement. Having done so, the prosecution has agreed to now formally decline the case. Although this case took several years of patience to be completed, the client and his family are thrilled with the final result.
