A Jefferson County man was facing up to four years in prison and lifetime sex offender registration for allegedly attempting to molest his stepdaughter. Mr. Muhlenkamp cross-examined the alleged victim at the preliminary hearing and took her deposition in preparation for trial. He was able to point out a number of inconsistencies in what she said happened. He also highlighted that her entire story was unreasonable and defied common sense.
On the morning of trial, the State agreed to dismiss the felony sex offense and instead offered the Defendant a non-sex misdemeanor assault. He no longer had to worry about a potential felony conviction or lifetime sex offender registration.
