Acquittal for Client Charged With Multiple Sex Crimes

When an Allegheny County man was falsely accused of raping his minor daughter, he trusted the accomplished sex crimes defense attorneys at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, LLC to protect his reputation.

Despite vehemently denying his daughter’s allegations, the client was charged with eight separate sex offenses — including rape, sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and aggravated indecent assault. This meant he faced a lengthy prison sentence, lifetime registration as a sex offender, and the loss of his high-profile career, family life, and future.

Our sex crimes lawyers immediately sprang into action to fight these baseless allegations. During a thorough investigation, we discovered crucial evidence that undermined his daughter’s story and revealed a pattern of similar behaviors, including a series of text messages where she flippantly accused her dad of rape.

The experienced and diligent legal team at Worgul, Sarna & Ness built a robust defense strategy that not only attacked the daughter’s credibility, but also effectively supported the father’s innocence. As part of our approach, we brought in three character witnesses to testify in our client’s favor.

After hearing our argument, the jury acquitted our client of all eight charges. He can now resume his life with his reputation and freedom intact.
