On November 19, 2019, an Ocean County, New Jersey grand jury declined to indict our client, who was charged with second degree sexual assault, and endangering the welfare of a child. Had the client been indicted and convicted, he would have faced 5 to 10 years in prison, and Megan’s Law registration requirements.
After meeting with our client and listening to his version of events, the experienced criminal defense lawyers of Schwartz & Posnock conducted a thorough investigation, uncovering evidence and demanding that the state present it to the grand jury. The facts discovered demonstrated that our client was wrongly charged, and the grand jurors agreed. As a result, all charges were dismissed.
Based on the dismissal, we are pursuing expungement on behalf of our client. His record will be wiped clean and he will soon be able to say, according to law, that he has never been arrested.
