Sexual Battery Charges Dropped Before Trial

On March 18, 2022, the State Attorney’s Office filed a “NOTICE OF NOLLE PROSEQUI” that effectively dropped all charges against our client who had been charged with:

  • 810.021(B)(2)(a) – BURG0002 (FP) BURGLARY OF an OCCUPIED DWELLING WITH ASSAULT OR BATTERY, a felony punishable by life in prison; and

Just a few weeks prior to the notice of nolle prosequi being filed, the Court denied the State’s Motion in Limine to prevent the defense from presenting evidence that the alleged victim had fabricated a factual similar allegation of rape against another man under very similar circumstances just a few months prior to the accusations in this case. The court also granted our motion to argue at trial, pursuant to § 794.022(2), Fla. Stat., that same “Reverse Williams Rule” evidence. Shortly thereafter, the prosecutor dropped the charges.

NOT GUILTY Jury Verdict on a First Degree Felony (Punishable by Life with a 25 Year Min Man)

On December 5, 2018, a jury returned a “NOT GUILTY” verdict on the charge of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation. The charge was pending before the Honorable Susan L. Barthle in Dade City in Pasco County, FL. That version of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation is punishable by life in prison (with a 25 year minimum mandatory prison sentence). Instead of facing those penalties, our client was exonerated of the charge and walked out of the courthouse with us after the jury returned the “not guilty” verdict. Leslie Sammis was the lead attorney for the jury trial.
