People v. E.C. - Unlawful Restraint Case (2008)

Mr. E.C. was charged with two counts of Felony Unlawful Restraint. In order to win this case, Attorney Steven Roach knew he would have to expose the alleged victim to be a liar. His theory was that she made these accusations against his client because they were involved in a relationship that was about to get exposed to the live-in father of her child. Mr. Roach pulled a number of phone records detailing hundreds of calls that were exchanged between my client and this alleged victim. An aggressive cross examination of her showed that there was a motive to lie about the events. The Judge agreed with Mr. Roach's theory and E.C. was found Not Guilty.
