Regina v. Hassen (2006)

Mr. Hassen was charged with sexually assaulting a co-worker and was alleged to have gotten the woman drunk and brutally sexually assaulted her while at the workplace on a break. Following a very carefully crafted cross examination – Ms Shemesh was able to establish that the complainant had been lying and that the two had ultimately had a sexual affair that had lasted for a period of two years. Further, Ms Shemesh had established that the complainant had suffered from anxiety and had been taking numerous medications and drinking alcohol, thus impairing her judgment. Following 3 hours of deliberations, the jury acquitted Mr. Hassen of the charge.
