State vs. 'Confidential Client' -  Attorney Patrick Roberts, an experienced sexual assault defense attorney, was able to successfully defend a student at a major NC university. The client was accused of sexual assault by a fellow student after a consensual intimate encounter.


Mr. Roberts meticulously compiled important evidence to prove the client's innocence. This pertinent information was promptly communicated to both the law enforcement authorities and the university's administration. Ultimately, the District Attorney's Office and the University decided not to pursue charges based on the allegations.


Attorney Roberts' dedicated work ensured that the client could continue with his academic progress uninterrupted, even amid an investigation and a brief emergency suspension from the University. The strong defense he provided meant that the client never missed a single exam, demonstrating his commitment as a sex crime lawyer and securing a win for his client.


No Charges Filed

The police did not press charges against the client, and his University did not impose any disciplinary measures.
