Police were called when a young French immigrant engaged in a late night heated argument with her fiancé. The Police witnessed the woman becoming increasingly angry and hit her fiancé with a closed fist. The police felt the woman was intoxicated and arrested her for Disorderly Conduct.
RESULT: Through careful, skilled negotiations with the State Prosecutor, we effectively advocated on behalf of our Client. Our Attorney convinced the State that our Client’s actions did not meet the standard of a “ threat to the safety of other people ”, as required under Florida Law to prove Disorderly Conduct. The Court withheld adjudication, resulting in no formal finding of guilt of our Client.
