Dukes Not Guilty of Sexual Assault

After a second trial, CDH Law obtained an acquittal for Sheldon Dukes, accused of predatory sexual assault in Watertown, New York.  He faced life in prison if convicted.  The judge took less than 30 minutes to issue his verdict.  In the previous trial, the jury could not agree and the result was a mistrial.  You can find coverage of the case here and here.
