An instructor at a local high school was accused by a student of indecent assault on the last day of school. The assault, which included a claim of inappropriate sexual contact, allegedly occurred while other students enjoyed a party and movie in a nearby classroom. After four days of trial, the jury acquitted the instructor of all charges. The evidence tended to show that the student fabricated the allegations after being caught skipping school. The defense team included David G. Ridge and Tim George. Mr. Ridge delivered the opening statement and conducted a number of direct and cross-examinations. Erie criminal defense lawyer Tim George cross-examined the female student who leveled the allegations against her instructor. Tim also gave the closing argument.
