Rape - Bronx County
The client was charged with engaging in the rape of a stepdaughter. The stepdaughter was 22 years old and had come to live with the client's family from her native country in order to gain legal status in the United States. Client claimed that the sexual relationship was purely consensual and that the only reason that the complaining witness made a rape accusation was that she did not want anyone to think that she was having a consensual sexual relationship with her stepfather. Ultimately, Sullivan & Brill, LLP continued to negotiate with Bronx County and in the end, the Bronx County District AttorneyÕs Office agreed to dismiss all charges.
