RALEIGH, NC, February 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Wake County criminal defense duo of Patrick Roberts and Jesse Scharff of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, worked together to avoid charges of domestic assault
and/or forcible sexual assault after police investigated an assault complaint in Cary.
The man was accused by his wife of forcible sexual assault. She requested a domestic violence protective order, which triggers the scheduling of a Chapter 50B hearing in North Carolina. Experienced defense lawyer Jesse Scharff handled the 50B matter and defeated the request for a stay-away order
, allowing the man involved to continue to have access to his home and his family without being in violation of the law.
At the request of Roberts and Scharff, the man submitted to a polygraph examination regarding the details of the crime of which his wife had accused him. Roberts fully prepared the client for his meeting with the detective involved in the case and presented the polygraph test as evidence that his client did not assault his wife as she accused.
Instead, Roberts asserted to the detective that the man's wife had an ulterior motive for making the assault claims: immigration concerns. Documentation backing this claim was also presented to the detective investigating the domestic assault allegations.
The client was facing up to 30 years in prison if charged and convicted of forcible sexual assault. Roberts and Scharff, through effective advocacy during the investigation, secured his future. He would not have to go to prison. He would not be subject to a protective order. He would not even have to defend himself against charges of domestic violence or sexual assault. No charges were ever filed.
