Sam Friedman attorney to give free trial to rape survivor

Former prosecutor Sam Friedmans attorney, Richard S. Smith, is preparing to give a free trial for a rape survivor in the Southern District of New York.

In a statement on Tuesday, Friedman said the trial, which he will deliver to a jury, will address a number of important issues: “I believe that there is a strong likelihood that a jury will find that the defendant in this case acted within the bounds of his constitutional rights.”

Friedman will represent the survivor, who is a former high school student who was sexually assaulted in a hotel room in 2016.

She has asked for the trial to take place in the state of New Jersey.
