Forcible touching in a nightclub case dismissed for financial professional (Manhattan)

2015

Our client was arrested for allegedly forcibly touching the sexual or intimate parts of another person inside a crowded Manhattan nightclub. Our client had never been arrested before and was not a US citizen and so conviction could not only cause extreme professional and personal injury but could have led to being removed from the US. After meeting with our client for the case evaluation, we were convinced that we had to fight on the grounds that there was insufficient evidence for proof beyond a reasonable doubt. We investigated the complainant and sought all available police records and any video surveillance. After a few months of negotiation, we noticed that the prosecutor was making a procedural error and we successfully moved for a complete and unconditional dismissal. Our client’s case resulted in no jail, no criminal record, no sex offender program or registration.
