Not Guilty:

Client charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 1st Degree. If convicted, client faced a presumptive sentence of 144 months in prison and the considerable likelihood of indefinite civil commitment. During the lengthy jury trial, the State called several lay witnesses as well as a highly paid expert witness who testified against client. Attorney Knuesel was able to discredit the State’s witnesses and convince the jury that the alleged victim was not credible. The jury ultimately returned a Not Guilty verdict.
