Our client, who is married, had an affair that lasted several years. After the affair ended, the relationship between our client and his former mistress became extremely hostile. The mistress reported to the police that our client called her repeatedly and threatened to harm her. She also reported that our client had planted cocaine in her car and had her arrested, that he attempted to get her fired from her job, and that he broke into her apartment when she wasn’t home. At trial, several police officers testified that their investigation supported the mistress’ story. Our client’s phone records established that our client called the mistress over and over again even after she obtained a restraining order against him. The phone records also proved that our client called the police and reported that the mistress had cocaine in her car. The police later concluded that our client had planted the cocaine. Finally, the Commonwealth played audio recordings of our client making threats against the mistress in phone conversations. Our client was indicted and charged with felony counts of stalking and stalking in violation of a restraining order. Following a trial, a Middlesex Superior Court jury found our client not guilty of the two stalking charges.
