Client found not guity of aggravated rape of a child

Yesterday a Middlesex Superior Court jury found my client not guilty of three counts of aggravated rape of a child. He was facing 10 year mandatory minimum sentences. Sex crimes, especially when allegedly committed against children, carry an unofficial presumption of guilt. For this reason, I find that these are the toughest cases for defense lawyers. I am grateful to the jury for listening carefully to the evidence and for keeping an open mind when evaluating it.
