false-criminal-accusationsA discussion about the concept of false allegations - where a client is falsely accused of a criminal offence - and the impact it has on the criminal justice system. Mr. Lewandowski discusses how difficult it can be to separate the false accusations from the legitimate ones, and how important your choice in lawyer is to this end.
sexual-assault-reducedIt is unfortunately, no unusual for a complainant with a mental illness to imagine assaults that never occurred. The problem with such witnesses, is that they honestly believe their memories to be true, but in reality, they are not. In this case, the complainant has imagined - in a drug induced stupor - that she had been raped. During cross-examination by Paul Lewandowski, she admitted that she couldn't tell fiction from fantasy. The sexual assault charge was reduced to a simple assault. The client was given a conditional discharge, and was spared a criminal record.
