Linda Fairstein - Author and Sex Crimes Prosecutor

FANTASTIC NEWS: December 21, 1999: The Jovanovic conviction in the "Cybersex Torture Case" has just been reversed. Check your morning newspapers, as this news will be in every newspaper in New York, possibly in every newspaper in the USA.

The grounds for reversal were exactly the grounds which have been cited on this web site, that evidence was withheld from the jury vital to the defense.

Here news articles about this decision:

Linda Fairstein, who directs the prosecution of sexual assault in New York, said, "There are about 4,000 reports of rape each year in Manhattan. Of these, about half simply did not happen. ... It's my job to bring justice to the man who has been falsely accused by a woman who has a grudge against him, just as it's my job to prosecute the real thing."

"Linda Fairstein has led an even more exciting life than her fictional heroine. Below are just some of her achievements"

Linda Fairstein's most recent achievement has been the successful prosecution and possible life sentence of Oliver Jovanovic, after several police officers and co-workers at the Manhattan DA's office advised her to drop the case.

UPDATE: The appeal in the Jovanovic case was argued before the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York on February 2, 1999: 'Cybersex' Appeal Raises Shield Law, Consent Issues.

MORE UPDATES: Oliver Jovanovic has been in jail for more than one year now, for a crime for which no informed jury would have convicted him. Meanwhile, the New York Post has come out again against this conviction.

Manhattan Sex Crimes Prosecutor Linda Fairstein, on a book selling tour, gloats to the Times of London about how she successfully hid evidence from the jury about this case. See: SEX CRIMES AND THE CITY; INTERVIEW; LINDA FAIRSTEIN - Times of London , Saturday, October 30, 1999.
