Jury Acquits Defendant

Charles Henderson, 62, of the 300 Block of Washington Street was represented by Scott M. Wilhelm, Esq. Mr. Henderson was charged with First Degree Aggravated Sexual Assault and Second Degree Child endangerment. . The first degree charge carried a sentence of up to 20 years in state prison. Attorney Scott Wilhelm successfully argued to the Court that certain prior bad acts were inadmissible. In particular, the State alleged that Mr. Henderson was involved in a prior sexual crime in 1986. This evidence was excluded and therefore the jury was unaware of this evidence. During the trial both Mr. Henderson as well as his accuser testified at length. As a result of Attorney Wilhelm's legal arguments and presentation of his case, the Jury Acquitted Mr. Henderson on all charges.& ;
