After a bench trial, Kauai attorney Lawrence McCreery, 64, was found guilty of harassment Thursday after a former client testified that while discussing her child custody case last year, he licked the back of her right ear.
She said he told the 21-year-old woman while touching her arm, ‘You look so good,’ and ‘Too bad you’re married,’ according to the Kauai prosecuting attorney’s office.
The woman said he made a ‘weird sound’ and hugged her tightly right before the licking.
McCreery testified to deny he licked her and claimed she initiated the hug.
Per Diem Fifth Circuit District Court Judge Frank Rothschild ruled there’s no evidence the woman made up the story.
