Case Conclusion Date: 09.21.2016
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client charged with Assault Fourth Degree (DV) under RCW 9A.36.041 following a misunderstanding with his wife. The crime is a gross misdemeanor punishable up to 1 year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Client had no prior criminal history. Unfortunately, Client risked being demoted from his high-level engineering job if he was convicted of any crimes. At arraignment, Mr. Ransom successfully rescinded the No-Contact Order with the cooperation of Client's wife. Eventually, Mr. Ransom interviewed Client's wife and discovered she wanted the charges dismissed and would not cooperate with the Prosecutor's efforts to change her mind otherwise. This allowed Mr. Ransom to successfully negotiate a Stipulated Order of Continuance resolution dismissing the charges after Client shows 1 year of good behavior. The court imposed no jail, no evaluations, no treatment and no probation.
