Wisconsin Law Firm: Criminal Defense Case Results

Madison, WI, Priest Acquitted in Sex Assault Trial

On December 5, 2011, a Dane County Jury returned a verdict of not guilty on an allegation that a Madison, WI, priest sexually assaulted a teenage girl in 2004.  Attorney Stephen J. Eisenberg of Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C. argued that the allegations of sexual assault by the teenage girl were the result of false memories that formed in the girl’s mind during mental health therapy sessions and augmented by psychology classes she took in school. 

The defense argued that the young girl’s story was inconsistent and that when she started psychiatric therapy, some facets of the therapy, including a technique called guided imagery, inadvertently led to reconfiguration of her memory about the events to the point that her memories were unreliable.

 

Eisenberg argued that the young girl utilized real memories of specific events that merged into memories that did not actually take place as a result of her dreams, fantasies and hallucinations.
