Emily Dahm’s client, Tun Sein, a recent immigrant from Burma, was accused of pushing his wife so violently that she fell and hit her head on the sidewalk. After a jury trial, he was found not guilty. The jury was convinced of Sein’s innocence after hearing testimony from emergency room physicians, who could not find a single mark, bump, or scrape on Sein’s wife. Emily also presented the jury with strong evidence that Sein’s wife and sister-in-law had a financial motive for making false claims against him.
Sein had faced a year in county jail if convicted of the misdemeanor charges.
