Phoenix Criminal Lawyers Have Evidence to Prove Brian Willner Innocence

By Laura Fishman on July 27, 2010 12:05 PM| No TrackBacks

An Avondale special-education teacher was accused of raping a special-needs student sometime between March 23 and April 2, but the teacher at Agua Fria High School claims that he is innocent and that the teen fabricated the rape story. Last May, he pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping, sexual abuse and sexual conduct with a minor.

The Arizona Republic reports that the Phoenix criminal lawyers representing the defendant Brian Willner have been given access to records that they believe will prove the allegations that the teenager made the rape story up. Defense attorneys Richard Lougee and Christopher Dupont requested the release of the girl's medical, mental health, criminal history and Child Protective Services records. Superior Court Judge Paul McMurdie granted the attorneys' request for the records on July 13.

Brian Willner's criminal lawyers are looking to challenge key evidence that was leveled against him. A document filed by the attorneys states that the girl who turned 16 this month has bipolar disorder, psychosis and ADHD and is on medication. According to the attorneys' documents, the girl has falsely accused teachers of trying to sexually assault her in the past. Attorneys also say that the girl's "story morphed on each retelling: about where the incident took place; about the actual events; and about being knocked unconscious and taken to the nurse's office to recover (there is no such record at the nurse's office)."

Anybody who has wrongfully been accused of rape or sexual assault should immediately see a Phoenix criminal defense attorney so that all the evidence can be properly analyzed in a particular case. For a local listing of lawyers, see FindLaw's directory.
