I'm writing on behalf of Dustin Ray Moore who was recently released from incarceration. Upon his arrest, I believe the authorities took unfair advantage of his youth (18 years old), his naivete about legal matters, and his lack of access to robust legal representation. As he related to me the facts leading up to his court appearance, plea bargain and conviction, I became shocked by the conduct of the New Castle County, Delaware police, the prosecutor, and his public defender. Dustin voluntarily agreed to a police interview. After waiving his right to counsel, the police grilled him for hours attempting to force a confession of rape. The accuser, a 21-year-old woman Heather, along with her daughters, shared a home with Dustin, his mother Jill, and family. The amorous young couple, both under the influence of illicit drugs and alcohol, had had a late-night rendezvous. Seeking to deceive her then-boyfriend about the affair, Heather concocted the story of rape to explain away her encounter with Dustin. Shortly after Dustin's arrest, Heather tearfully recanted her assertion of rape to Jill. However, the prosecuting attorney told her it was too late to recant. Please comment on the advisabily of retaining an attorney to investigate the circumstances surrounding this case. Thank you.
