Once again, VanHo Law's experience and hard work helped get charges dismissed against one of our clients.
In State v. A.V., an Akron father was charged in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas with Kidnapping and two counts of Gross Sexual Imposition. The allegations stemmed from an alleged incident from several years ago, and the client was facing up to seventeen years in prison.
Throughout the case, the client insisted that he had not committed the acts against a younger family matter. His position, as articulated in court filings, was that the allegations were done in order to gain an advantage in a custody and visitation case. He also indicated that the charges and allegations were in retaliation for his moving on and entering into a relationship with a new girlfriend.
After months of preparation, the case was ready for trial.
Immediately before the final pretrial, our office received a phone call from the Court indicating that the prosecutor's office had dismissed the charges.
Later that night, our client was reunited with his family.
While results are never guaranteed, our team felt confident that once a jury heard our case, we would be victorious. Luckily, we were able to persuade the prosecutor not to proceed to trial and obtained the verdict that was just and correct for our client.
