Client Facing Abuse Allegations Found Not Guilty by JuryCategory: Child Endangerment
Abuse allegations against one of our clients jeopardized his future as a home health care aide, a job he had worked in for over a decade.
The client was in his mid-40s with no criminal record when one of his patients told police they were being mistreated by our client. Without a thorough investigation, police sided with the patient, and the aide faced charges of child endangerment and patient abuse.
The case went to trial for months, but our work remained aggressive and unwavering. Gathering discovery on the case was particularly crucial; we were able to argue that the alleged victim was lying, and ultimately, the jury found our client not guilty.
This result not only meant our client was allowed to finally resume work, but also meant he wouldn’t serve six months in jail, pay significant fines, or lose his home healthcare license. We got the charges sealed from our client’s record, and the aide was able to carry on with his reputation and future intact.
