Verdict: Charges Never Filed
Woman avoids being charged as an accessory to grisly murder. A man violently murdered his wife and then implicated his girlfriend in a plan to dismember and dispose of the wife’s body. The girlfriend claimed she had no idea what the man had done but it was likely the authorities would soon charge her as an accessory after the fact. She retained the Law Offices of Lawrence & Peck and we took immediate and aggressive action. We conducted an extensive investigation, developed positive evidence, and met repeatedly with the authorities. As a result of our quick work, criminal charges were never filed and she was able to continue with her college education.
