Case Conclusion Date:April 25, 2013
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:All criminal charges dismissed
Description:My client was facing VERY serious charges - 2nd degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, 2nd degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, 3rd degree Terroristic Threats, and 4th degree Aggravated Assault (pointing of a firearm) in Passaic County. The charges stemmed from a domestic violence incident that allegedly transpired between him and his girlfriend. Immediately upon being retained, I hired an investigator to work on behalf of my client. I uncovered that the "victim" had fabricated the entire incident. What's worse, she caused him to take the fall for a gun that had been turned over to him through a "no questions asked" surrender program. I presented this information to the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office who, in turn, presented it to the Grand Jury. The case was "no billed" - all charges dismissed.
