Marjorie Russell – TLC ’94 Grad. 

TLC Staff member Kim Benjamin has been helping elderly client defend bizarre and ridiculous sex crime allegations for two years. He rotted (literally) in jail for most of it, until the judge finally released him very recently, due to her dogged persistence in challenging pretrial detention. One of his co-accused died in jail.

It was all based on “repressed memory” and the stories were full of holes. The claims were of things that supposedly happened 20+ years ago when the accusers were children. Despite claims of forced sex with horses and such, it took most of the two years to get an order for in camera review to determine whether the accused could get access to medical records that most certainly would have shown injuries if the claims were true.
