State v. J.T.

William T Bly Case Results: State v. J.T.

Charges: Gross Sexual Assault (NOT GUILTY after trial)

Maximum Penalty: up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.00

Summary: J.T. was accused of Gross Sexual Assault (rape) with an element of force or coercion.  J.T. met a young lady online and a conversation was struck up.  Over the course of the next few months, the two of them appeared to enter into a relationship.  As they grew closer, they decided to meet, and ultimately went to J.T.’s house to watch TV.  The young lady initiated sexual contact with J.T., who reciprocated.  Ultimately, she “flipped the switch” on J.T., calling the police and accusing him of rape.  J.T.’s life was turned upside down and over the course of the next 5 years, he lost everything except his dignity and freedom.  From day one, J.T. insisted he never forced himself on the young lady and that she was lying.  After 5 long years, this case went to trial with Attorney William T. Bly as the lead trial attorney.  Numerous witnesses for the prosecution and defense testified over the course of 3 days.  Over the course of nearly a day, the young lady testified and was subject to a withering cross-examination by Attorney Bly.

Results: In the end, the jury found the young lady lacked credibility and acquitted J.T. of the charges.  While victory is certainly sweet, it is still tragic to see an innocent person’s life virtually destroyed over a false accusation, which is why when the chips are down, and you’re facing a fight for your future and freedom, The Maine Criminal Defense Group should be your first and last call.  We’ll fight for you, your future and your freedom.
