Sexual Assault Charge Declined
Law enforcement in South Central Wisconsin contacted a Chirafisi and Verhoff client regarding a report of a sexual assault that was alleged to have occurred more than a year earlier. The client wisely, but politely declined to meet with the detective and immediately contacted our office. Our lawyers then contacted the detective on our clients behalf. Our lawyers did not allow the client, who denied wrongdoing, to speak with law enforcement. However, our lawyers were able to obtain significant information about the case from the detective. Our lawyers then contacted the prosecution to discuss the case before a charge was issued to discuss the case. No charges were filed, and the case was declined.
