Defendant's Attorney: Not available
Description: Leesburg, Virginia personal Injury lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued defendants on a malicious prosecution theory claiming that she was wrongful charged and arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with former 17-year-old student.
The charges against Kim Winters were eventually dropped, but not until she was harmed professionally and financially.
Winters sued Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman and Deputy Peter Rogue.
Plaintiff claimed that the deputy disregarded many inconsistencies in the teenager’s story including failing to subpoena the cell carrier records of the teen, his mother or Winters. The deputy also brought charges without interviewing any of the teen’s friends to verify his allegations & never interviewed Winters or her family to look for an alibi or determine whether the teen’s claims could be credible.
Plaintiff testified that: "I lost all of my friends. I lost my career. No one would hire me. My life has been ruined. Flat-out ruined. Roque labeled me as a pedophile."
Outcome: Plaintiff's verdict for $5 million vindicating Plaintiff.
