What is Harassing or Obscene:
I recently won a case where my client was charged with sending obscene text messages a young lady and the messaged were quite mean in nature: the messages made fun of her heritage, her family and herself.
At court the prosecutor presented all of the text messages to the judge. I did not have my client testify but I did very throughly cross-examine the complaining witness (the woman) and the police officer who made the arrest.
I was able to show the court that there were messages going back and forth and that the prosecutor only had my client’s messages. In other words, there is two sides to every story. The court agreed with my theory of the case and my client was found not guilty.
