Case Study: Dismissal of Child Molestation Accusation Due to Refusal to Turn Over Social Media Messages

The Incident

A step-father was accused of molesting his 13-year-old step-daughter and her best friend. This serious accusation led to a significant child molestation legal battle, threatening the step-father’s freedom and reputation.

THE LEGAL BATTLE

Uncovering Key Evidence in Child Molestation: The Role of Social Media

James Law Group, defending the accused step-father, conducted an extensive investigation into the social media activities of the two young girls. They uncovered tens of thousands of tweets posted by the step-daughter and her best friend, detailing nearly every aspect of their lives.

Insights from Tweets

The tweets revealed that the step-daughter harbored negative feelings towards her step-father and that her friend was supportive of her desire to remove him from her life. These public posts suggested that the girls might have had ulterior motives for making the accusations. Furthermore, the tweets indicated that they discussed their plans in more detail through direct messaging.

Refusal to Disclose Messages

Despite repeated requests from the defense, the prosecution refused to turn over the direct messages between the two girls. The defense argued that these messages were critical to understanding the full context of the accusations and could potentially exonerate the step-father.

Achieving Justice

Dismissal of Charges: A Victory for the Accused

After a year of intense legal battles, the state ultimately dismissed all charges against the step-father. The refusal to disclose the direct messages played a pivotal role in this decision, as the prosecution could not sufficiently support their case without this evidence.
