People v. VG (Domestic Violence)

Case Conclusion Date: 01.18.2012

Practice Area: Criminal Defense

Outcome: Dismissed with plea to lesser offense

Description: I was charged with a violation of Penal Code section 243(e)(1) [Battery on a Co-habitant, spouse] and Penal Code Section 236 [False Imprisonment] for an alleged domestic violence situation. I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his familarity with the courts and District Attorney. My case was complicated by fact that the “victim” showed signs of minor injuries in photos taken after the incident. This crime carried a maximum of 1 year in jail. Mr. Bruzzo negotiated my case by showing the lack of credibility of the witness and also developed a very effective theory of the case. In the end the District Attorney agreed to DISMISS the domestic violence charges against me in exchange for my pleading guilty to a much less non domestic violence offense. I received no jail and only 1 year of probation. I am very grateful to Mr. Bruzzo for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any criminal or domestic violence matter.
