Marquette – After a three-day jury trial, attorney Karl Numinen obtained a full acquittal for his client, a former police officer accused of several counts of felony criminal sexual assault. The retired police officer, who was employed as a bus driver for the Marq-Tran municipal bus service, was accused of sexually assaulting one of his passengers, a developmentally disabled woman. The client adamantly denied the allegations. At trial, Numinen was able to show how the accuser’s allegations were a product of coaching and suggestion by untrained interrogators. The prosecutor’s circumstantial evidence was discredited through Numinen’s thorough cross examination.
