Case Conclusion Date: 09.10.2012
Practice Area: Domestic violence
Outcome: Domestic violence charges dismissed. Client kept his professional license.
Description: Client is facing domestic violence charges. The prosecutor wants a conviction for domestic violence and for client to do jail, one year of domestic violence counseling, fines, and probation for three years. A conviction for domestic violence would cause client to lose his professional licensing. While preparing for trial, Mr. Sabado convinces the prosecutor that the prosecutor’s case is very weak and is likely to lose. The domestic violence case is dismissed and instead client pleads guilty to a "ticket" involving disturbing the peace via loud noise and preserves client's professional licensing.
