“To Catch a Predator” Case Victory.
Client came to Law Office of Patrick J McLain with a conviction for online
solicitation of minor. Team McLain filed a writ and the conviction was
overturned. Prosecutor refiled the case, and at trial, the jury awarded
four years’ probation. Team McLain is working to restore the lost
military retirement of this client pursuant to the earlier conviction.
Healthcare Fraud Charges Against Client Never Filed.
Client worked with Team McLain over several years, as his partners have
been indicted in federal court, and Client has avoided indictment, with
guidance from Team McLain. Key to success has been controlled flow of
information to federal prosecutors and Client patience with Team McLain strategy.
Child Pornography Charge Dismissed In Federal Court.
Client arrested at his home, electronic storage devices seized, and he
made a confession to possession of child pornography. On the eve of trial,
Team McLain achieved a dismissal of child pornography indictment in exchange
to a plea of guilty to an obscenity charge which reduced Client’s
exposure to jail time by seventy-five (75%) percent. By agreeing to allow
Team McLain to commit to a prolonged fight for him, Client had time to
get through therapy and deal with the issues that lead to his trouble
with the law in the first place.
Firearms Charges At Airport – Dismissed.
Team McLain has achieved “No Bill” (no indictment filed by
grand jury) in one hundred (100%) percent of its airport firearms cases.
Clients have followed the guidance of Team McLain and worked together
to produce a briefing for grand juries that has successfully kept several
clients from being indicted, much less convicted or in court.
Sexual Assault Of Girlfriend’s Daughter – Jury Acquits On All Charges.
Client had long-term live-in relationship with girlfriend. They were both
active in the arts community in the city. They eventually had a bitter
break-up. Soon thereafter, the allegation that Client sexually molested
the girlfriend’s elementary school age daughter arose. At trial,
Team McLain presented the truth of the case to the jury, and that jury
acquitted Client on all charges.
Sexual Assault On Second Wife’s Children – Acquittal On All Charges.
Client lived with his second wife and her two children by a prior relationship.
When Client decided to return to his first wife, charges arose that Client
had sexually molested second wife’s two children and physically
assaulted the child Client conceived with second wife. After a week-long
trial, the jury acquitted Client on all charges. Team McLain was able
to work with Client for months to develop the story that established his
innocence of the charges.
Allegations Of Sexual Assault On Teenage Stepdaughter - Jury Acquits.
Client had met his wife when her two children were very young and was the
only father they knew for the first dozen years of their lives. When the
daughter, in her teenaged years, met her biological father and perceived
living with him would gain her greater freedom, she alleged Client had
sexually molested her for about a dozen years. Team McLain was able to
develop the facts that the State failed to gather to gain an acquittal
on all charges, even when Client’s wife acquiesced to pressures
from Child Protective Services and turned on her husband at trial. Using
expert testimony and the work of a professional investigator, Team McLain
showed the jury the truth and their verdict of acquittal rewarded all
that hard work.
