Local construction worker was accused of raping his five-year-old son by inserting his penis in the child’s rectum. Medical slides of the child’s rectum showed serious injury. Allegations of sexual assault were filed during a bitter child custody case. Client was facing mandatory life imprisonment.
Marein and Bradley employed the services of a board certified pediatric-gastroenterologist, as well as a private investigator to secure sensitive medical records. At a hotly contested jury trial, Marein and Bradley proved that the child suffered from a chronic condition of severe constipation since birth which explained the extensive injury to the child’s rectum. The mother of the child, who testified for the prosecution, was exposed as manipulating the allegation and involving the criminal justice system to achieve her quest for custody. The client was found NOT GUILTY of all charges by the jury after a two-week trial.
