A 28 year old man was charged with 2nd Degree Sexual Assault with Use of Force, and Burglary. He had met the alleged victim on an online dating site, and was invited to her apartment for a massage. He later went to her apartment a second time to discuss their relationship.

The alleged victim claimed he forced his way into her apartment, dragged her into her bedroom, and forcibly raped her. Our client's version was that they were intimate, and the alleged victim exploded when he came clean and admitted to being married.

Law enforcement was involved very quickly, and took DNA samples from the apartment. After months of analysis, they were able to determine our client's DNA was on the alleged victim's bedsheets. He was ultimately criminally charged.

Attorney Kaehne fought the case for a year, discovering many inconsistencies and factual discrepancies in the alleged victim's recollection of events. While initially looking like a difficult case due to the DNA evidence, and our client being untruthful with law enforcement, Attorney Kaehne continued to push forward to trial.

The day before trial was scheduled to commence, Attorney Kaehne was able to negotiate a favorable outcome. Our client was ultimately convicted of Adultery, and extremely rarely used statute in the State of Wisconsin. At sentencing, Attorney Kaehne was able to keep our client out of prison, and the client was placed on probation with minimal jail time. Additionally, Attorney Kaehne was able to negotiate the client not being subjected to any sex offender registry.
