North Carolina vs. J.H.Our client was wrongly charged with Statutory Rape in a rural county in central NC. The warrant was issued more than two years after the alleged crime and accused our client of having consensual sex with a former high school classmate. Our client, who had since graduated from high school and joined the United States Military, was deployed overseas when we were hired to represent him. After reviewing the charging documents and performing thorough research on the applicable law, we learned that our client and the alleged victim were less than 4 years apart, meaning that by law no crime was committed from their consensual relationship. After raising this issue with the assigned prosecutor, the charges were quickly dismissed and later expunged from our client’s record, saving his military career.
