NAA was a well-educated medical professional who had absolutely no history of adverse involvement with the police. Like many professionals, he simply preferred the privacy of an internet dating site to the bar scene. He met a woman over the internet and they ultimately engaged in sexual activity at his residence. NAA maintained his innocence relative to allegations of nonconsensual sex and instructed Patrick Fagan to enter a plea of not guilty.
Bottom Line: A full blown trial ensued during which the complainant testified for the prosecution and NAA testified in his own defence. The learned trial Judge ultimately returned with a verdict of not guilty.
