New trial granted for police officer convicted of sexual battery!

posted 2015 | State vs. S.O. (Appeal/Motion for New Trial)

The client was a local police officer who was charged in a high publicity case with sexual battery.  He was represented by another attorney who is now a judge in Broward County.  After a jury trial, the police officer was convicted of a very serious charge and was facing 15 yeas in prison.  His trial attorney contacted Mr. Forman in order to file a Motion for New Trial based upon juror misconduct.  Mr. Forman filed the motion and after an evidentiary hearing, the trial court granted the motion for new trial.  Of course, the client was thrilled that his sentence and conviction were vacated!
