R. v. R.R.
The client was over at his best friend’s apartment. The daughter of the best friend was twelve years old. The client and his friend had been drinking during the day and were preparing some supper. The client went to have a nap in a spare room. The twelve-year-old daughter was in that room.
The child complainant’s father claimed to have seen some possibly inappropriate conduct between his daughter and friend, R.R. Through cross-examination and detailed preparation Adam Weisberg was able to demonstrate the false allegation occurred because of the way in which the parents of the child questioned their daughter after becoming suspicious. The client was found not guilty after trial and has no criminal record.
