Assault 4 Domestic Violence – Self Defense – Dismissed

Client was arrested and charged with assault fourth degree domestic violence when his ex called police and reported that he had pulled her hair and struck her several times. Officers showed up to their home and my client had injuries to him and was calm with police. My client was arrested anyway.

After some investigation by our office, we showed that his ex had a pattern of assaulting him when she became jealous. The night my client was arrested, his ex had become intoxicated and assaulted him then lied to police.

The State dismissed the charge against my client.
