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
- 7940114B – SEXU4901 (FF) SEXUAL BATTERY BY PERSON 18 OR OLDER ON A VICTIME 18 OR OLDER (SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES), a first degree felony.
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.
