2 Domestic Violence Dismissals
After weeks of negotiation and hard work, the prosecution dismissed an Assault 4 DV charge against my client. We convinced the government that it was my client who was being abused by her husband for years and that when police arrived the husband manipulated the situation to make it seem like my client assaulted him.
It is a common situation where the victim of abuse gets arrested for assault when they have had enough and try to fight back.
In the other case, my client was charged with Assault 4 DV and trial was scheduled this week. The alleged victim said that nothing happened and that it was all a big misunderstanding. But for the case being set for trial and the prosecution having to actually prove their case, they would not have dismissed it.
