Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault — Conviction Reversed

In 2008, Ted Lothstein won a reversal on appeal where the accused was charged with Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault (alleged sexual assault of an adult), and the trial judge in Merrimack County Superior Court refused to allow cross-examination of the complainant regarding her prior false accusation of rape against another man.

  • The reversal in State v. Kornbrekke was the first time that the Court had ever reversed a rape conviction based on this type of limitation of the right to confront one’s accuser at trial.
