REDUCED | CHILD MOLESTATION & SEX ABUSE – (DMC No. 2128) (Maricopa County Superior Court No. CR2000-094277): Mr. W. was accused by his 13 year old step daughter of fondling her while he sat on his lap and she worked on a computer. We were able to show that the stepdaughter had lied in the past and had motives to have Mr. W. removed from the household. Because the detectives obtained a partial confession, we were able to negotiate a plea to attempted child molestation with probation and 4 months of jail. Mr. W. was originally facing a minimum of 10 years of day for day prison time.
