A 27 year old Sheboygan man was charged with 2nd Degree Sexual Assault in April of 2016. After learning the alleged victim was making false allegations of an assault, the client was proactive in retaining Kirk Obear and Associates prior to the District Attorney's office filing official charges. This quick action allowed our firm to take immediate action to protect his rights.

Kirk designated Attorney Brett Kaehne as lead counsel on the case. The alleged victim had come to our client's residence in February of 2016, where he lived with his male roommate. On the night of the alleged sexual assault, the alleged victim was highly intoxicated, and had come over to use the hot tub by herself.

She claimed that she felt ill while in the hot tub, and went upstairs to sleep in a spare bedroom as she had done in the past. Our client's roommate was home in his bedroom the entire time, and our client was sleeping next to his then long-time girlfriend. The alleged victim claimed that in the middle of the night, our client entered the bed she was sleeping in, and had sexual intercourse with her for 30 minutes without her consent. She claimed to be too intoxicated to move, resist, or say anything during the alleged assault.

Our client adamantly maintained his innocence throughout the year long courtroom battle. His roommate and ex-girlfriend came to his defense asserting they were sleeping right next to the spare bedroom and heard nothing. Attorney Kaehne litigated every conceivable motion over the course of a year preparing the matter for a jury trial. The case and courtroom litigation quickly became heated, and remained that way for over a year.

Just days before trial, after highlighting the weakness of the case, and lack of any meaningful or credible evidence, the prosecutor agreed to fully dismiss the charge. Though the initial stigma and publicity of the case caused our client tremendous hardships in his life, he is now engaged to be married, has a new successful career, and remains a free man. Another case that reinforces our commitment to seeing things through, fighting as long and hard as it takes, and always having our client's best interests and future in mind.
