Summary of Case:

"Gurmeet “Bill” Bhangal was wrongly convicted in February 2013 of sexual assaulting an 18-year-old young woman on April 25, 2011 when he was 45. Bhangal's conviction was based on the testimony of the young woman that he kissed and fondled her under her clothes without her permission while she was in his SUV, while he testified that the incident never occurred. The young woman did not allege that she suffered any physical injuries. At the time of the alleged assault the young woman worked for Bhangal.
