At trial, the State presented as witnesses the complaining witness and four family members and friends to corroborate her testimony. Attorney Christie’s client testified in his own defense. Through cross-examination of the State’s witnesses, Attorney Christie established several significant inconsistencies in the complaining witness’ story. In his closing, Attorney Christie argued to the jury his client was truthful when denying any wrongdoing and the State’s case was riddled with inconsistencies. The jury returned not guilty verdicts on all charges exonerating Attorney Christie’s client of the allegations against him.
