Assault (domestic violence)

May 25, 2018

Client risk = custody consequences, 6 months jail, 3 years probation, $2500 fine plus surcharges, mandatory domestic violence counseling, loss of gun rights. Prior to trial, victim interview (which doesn’t always happen due to Arizona laws) reveals that police report was clearly contradicted by victim account and that defendant had not committed a crime. Prosecutor immediately dismissed case. A nice win.
