Felony Molestation Reduced to Misdemeanor and No Jail
When a stepfather came to Elliot Silver after he was charged with molesting his 12 year old stepdaughter, attorney Silver immediately set to work. The man vehemently denied the allegations. After Elliot’s relentless cross-examination, he was able to highlight several inconsistencies in her allegations and secured a plea negotiation to simple battery, a lesser non-sex offense misdemeanor with probation and the condition to attend counseling. This allowed his client the opportunity to avoid jail, a serious felony conviction, and registration as a sex offender.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
