Fraud Case Dismissed at Trial
Jury Trial in the Strafford County Superior Court. Attorney Samdperil defended a client facing a felony prosecution for Fraudulently Altering a Deed. The State's evidence included testimony from the Register of Deeds, a long-time Dover attorney, and the county attorney's investigator.
At the close of the State's evidence, Attorney Samdperil argued that the case should be dismissed because the State failed to prove that the document was a deed. The trial judge agreed. Result: Case dismissed.
