Harris County Jury Acquits Houston Oil Executive of Sexual Assault

Quinones & Associates has helped secure the acquittal of a Houston oil and gas executive on charges he sexually assaulted a woman after a date in May 2017.

The 41-year-old defendant faced one count of sexual assault after the woman told police the two had a sexual encounter after a night out drinking but that she was too inebriated to consent.

The trial, which took place in Harris County’s 338th District Court, lasted three and a half days. On August 24, after deliberating for more than six hours, the panel of nine men and three women reached the not guilty verdict.

“I want to thank the jury for its hard work and the time it took to review all aspects of this case,” said defense attorney Letitia D. Quinones-Hollins. “It all came down to a lack of evidence, and I’m so pleased the jury recognized that. I’m very happy we could get this very positive outcome for our client.”

The defendant was represented by Quinones & Associates founder Letitia D. Quinones-Hollins and Attorney Edward D. Jointer.
