Michel Rantissi Jr.'s defense attorney, David Chesnoff, accused police on Tuesday of a rush to judgment ahead of Rantissi's arrest last week on sexual assault and lewdness charges.

Rantissi appeared with Chesnoff in court in North Las Vegas, where police issued a statement Saturday saying investigators were looking for more possible victims.
