Case Conclusion Date: January 11, 2013
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Description: 1. Domestic Assault 2. Assault Client was arrested for Domestic Assault and Assault. After a thorough review of the police reports and other evidence, we were convinced that the prosecution lacked evidence to prove all the elements of the crime, specifically that the Client had the intent to commit the charged crime. We spoke with the prosecutor about this lack of evidence several times. Although the Client faced the possibility of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted on either charge, we felt the cause was worth fighting. Eventually, 10 days prior to our scheduled trial date, the prosecution dismissed the case.
