The fictional tale of The Scarlet Letter: A Romance by Nathaniel Hawthorne, published in 1850 is alive and well in America today. In that story, a young unwed woman is pregnant. She refuses to name names. The townsfolk in that book make the main character wear a scarlet “A” on her dress when she is in front of the townspeople to shame her.

The letter “A” stands for adulteress. Her sentence required her to stand on the scaffold for three hours, exposed to public humiliation, and to wear the scarlet “A” for the rest of her life. When she dies, the punishment doesn’t even end then. Her tombstone reads “On a field, sable, the letter A, gules” (“A red letter A written on a black background”).

We know the science

When it comes to sex crimes, there almost never is a video or a photo that shows the alleged act. Instead it comes down to one thing: credibility. And that is a scary thing…. if you pick the wrong lawyer. One of our areas of focus is on the science of sex crimes. We use the science to your favor to attack the credibility of the complaining witness. Looking for signs of trauma that are either consistent with or inconsistent with the series of events that are reported to the police is vital to defend these cases. Most attorneys don’t know anything about this area.

Plus, we know DNA. We know DNA so well that we teach it to other lawyers: DNA for Lawyers In fact, Attorney Katy McShane once presented at the American Academy of Forensic Science national meeting on the difficulty of interpreting multi-person contribution DNA and problems with LCN DNA.
