Oklahoma v. LCU, Oklahoma County, CF-2003-2423
Defendant accused of nearly 60 different lewd acts including 1st degree rape and sexual abuse. His two step-daughters wanted to live with their biological dad and resorted to "nuclear" tactics when their mother said no. Mr. Pierce attacked the girls' trial testimony with their prior inconsistent statements to family, counselors and detectives; whereas, twelve family members and friends testified to LCU's character as a good and trustworthy father. Also, Dr. Ray Hand, PhD, testified about the potential unreliability of these kinds of accusations and the taint of slipshod investigative tactics. The jury completely acquitted LCU.
