Criminal Defense Attorney and Firm Founder Brad Koffel recently secured
a pair of positive resolutions in two pre-file investigation matters.
Both of the cases involved clients in prominent lines of work under investigation
for potential sex crimes.
In each case, Mr. Koffel’s early intervention proved invaluable –
as both were closed before any criminal charges were filed:
- Police Officer Cleared of Child Pornography & Voyeurism – Mr. Koffel’s client was under investigation on suspicion
of possession of child pornography and voyeurism. The client was terminated
immediately by their employing police department before the investigation
was concluded. Following a 6-month investigation, it was determined the
images under the client’s possession were not illegal, and that
there was no corroborating evidence the client committed the crime of
voyeurism. The case was closed, and no criminal charges were filed.
- Doctor Falsely Accused of Rape, Case Closed – Mr. Koffel’s client, a practicing physician, had been falsely
accused of sexually assaulting his own daughter. The daughter’s
mother, our client’s ex-girlfriend, brought the allegations against
our client under what we believe was an attempt to extort additional money
from him. However, Mr. Koffel and our client challenged the allegations
against him, and refused to cooperate with the ex-girlfriend. The client
passed a polygraph and was prepared to defend himself in court before
the case was closed with no criminal charges.
Sex crimes are among the most harshly punished and severely viewed offenses on our
books, and mere allegations alone have the potential to alter the reputations
and lives of the accused. As these two cases show, seeking the counsel
of an experienced criminal defense attorney during pre-file investigations
is crucial to protecting one’s rights when under scrutiny by law
enforcement, and to pursuing case closures which avoid what are often
serious and life-altering criminal charges.
Brad Koffel and Koffel Brininger Nesbitt represent clients facing
sex crime investigations and a range of criminal and administrative allegations related to sex
crimes and sexual misconduct – including
Title IX matters,
computer sex crimes, juvenile /
high school sex offenses, and more.
