Oklahoma v. JDT, Cleveland County, CF-2001-690
Defendant charged with forcible sodomy and 1st degree rape of his then 14 year old step-daughter. JDT married into an already dysfunctional household consisting of a mother and two daughters. JDT established and began enforcing rules that encroached upon the 14 year old's independence, and the power struggle culminated in accusations of sexual abuse. After the examination of many witnesses and an especially vigorous cross-examination of the teenager by Mr. Pierce, using DHS records, school records and her own diary to attack her credibility, the jury completely acquitted JDT.
