TRIAL ENDS WITH HUNG JURY AND ACQUITTAL FOR MAN ACCUSED OF DRUGGING, RAPING A WOMAN
March 11, 2013
Despite the fact that 53-year old Oregon resident, Rojelio Rosales, was indicted by a Twin Falls County grand jury for charges of rape, felonious administering of drugs and video voyeurism, Rosales' criminal defense attorney, Charles Crafts worked hard to establish his client's innocence. As a result of his in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system, his dedication towards protecting the rights of his client and his commitment to defending his client against the lies proliferated by the alleged victim, Rosales was not convicted. In fact, Rosales' trial ended with a jury acquittal on the charge that he feloniously administered drugs to a woman. As for the charges of video voyeurism and rape, the trial ended with a hung jury. When prosecutors decided to re-file the rape and video voyeurism charges at a later date, a plea bargain on Rosales' behalf resulted in the rape charge being dropped in its entirety, in return for a guilty plea on the video voyeurism charge. Upon sentencing, the judge ordered Rosales to serve 3-5 years in prison, with a suspended sentence for 3 years probation and pay restitution to the Crime Victim Compensation Program.
