Description: Client charged with Assault Fourth Degree Domestic Violence (DV) under RCW 9A.36.041 following an altercation with her significant other. Allegedly, client was mentally and physically abusive toward the victim and tried preventing the victim from leaving her home. We claimed Self-Defense and the Necessity defense. Our story was that the victim was highly intoxicated, argumentative, physically abusive and tried to drive home drunk. After extensive interviews with the victim and witnesses, the City offered to dismiss the case if client completed a DV evaluation and treatment. Fortunately, client obtained a favorable evaluation and completed an 8-session DV treatment program. The City dismissed the case as agreed. Client successfully avoided a criminal conviction, jail, court fines, firearms restrictions, and probation. Also, the judge rescinded the no-contact order.
