Not Guilty

Indecency with a Child (Texas Penal Code Section 21.11)

Defendant was charged in the 186th Judicial District Court of Bexar County, Texas, with the felony offense of engaging in sexual contact with a child under the age of 17 by contact. Donald H. Flanary, III. was lead counsel and his associate, Amanda I. Hernandez, was second chair. Throughout the trial, Don and Amanda were able to show that the State failed to do a thorough investigation of the matter and pointed out continuous errors and omissions by law enforcement. The offense was alleged to have been committed at a party at the defendant’s home, yet no witnesses were ever interviewed by the government. After a 5-day trial, the jury was able to understand the defendant’s story and he was found NOT GUILTY of offense charged.
