“My partner’s rape case was dismissed after jury selection but prior to start of trial. It was a he-said, she-said, “He got me drunk and took advantage of me” case, not forcible rape… with the alleged victim’s credibility destroyed, the prosecutor was left with no choice but to dismissBig shout out to investigators Don Johnson and Tina Skirvin of Trace Investigations for their help tracking and wearing down people who just really didn’t want to get involved.”

“We learned the lesson the hard way: we hired someone for a key position without verifying his background information. Then we hired Trace Investigations and learned that he was a very different person than he described in our interviews. Unwinding that hire set us back almost a year, which probably cost us $500,000 in sales.”
