Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Meghan Forhan
The Facts: Client was under investigation by police for sexually abusing his step-daughter after she disclosed inappropriate touching to her daycare worker. Client was contacted by police and asked to come in to make a statement and give a polygraph. Client properly contacted legal counsel before agreeing to do so. Meghan Forhan immediately called the lead investigator and advised her client would not participate in a public polygraph or provide a warned statement. After Meghan Forhan came on the case, the officer admitted they could not meet the legal standard necessary to forward charges to Crown Counsel without further evidence from the Client. Client maintained his innocence throughout the investigation.
Result: Investigation closed without any charge recommendations. No arrest.
