Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. Where did she allege this happened? Who did she make the complaint to and once you were aware, did you inform your employer and file a report?
Thank you for the additional information. Certainly, something like this needs to be documented by you, to protect your interest. Not only could this effect your employment BUT criminal charges could result as well, if there is evidence to show and support the assault. Now, as you shared, the client does have a history of mental illness, so there may be greater weight given to your statement and version of the event ( if anything even happened), seeing how it is possible that this was made up or exaggerated and nothing happened. Now, if and when you are contacted by the State, you can decide to retain legal counsel to represent you at that time, in regard to employment and if criminal charges are filed, retain a criminal defense attorney.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
