Minneapolis Criminal Defense Attorney Lynne Torgerson successfully averts charges of sexual misconduct
In today’s Me Too movement climate, sometimes wrongful accusations of sexual misconduct occur. Ms. Torgerson’s client’s former girlfriend accused him of sexual misconduct and was being investigated by law enforcement of the Mankato Police Department, in Blue Earth County. Ms. Torgerson was retained on a pre-charge representation basis; meaning, being hired to represent her client before formal charges have been brought. Hiring counsel at this stage, particularly where wrongful sexual misconduct accusations have occurred, can sometimes be very beneficial. Ms. Torgerson intervened, invoked her client’s constitutional rights, and after investigation, the police never brought any charges against her client. Well done Ms. Torgerson.
