Police were called to the scene of a disturbance that had turned physical. The Victim claimed the Defendant attacked her when she tried to leave the location with her children. The Defendant, whom had no relation to the Victim, stated to Police that he had an issue with the Victim’s children being out of bed this late at night. The Police documented the marks on the Victim’s face and took the Defendant into custody on Battery charges.
RESULT: The defense subpoenaed witnesses and the arresting Officer in preparation for trial. The attorney filed a Motion to Take Depositions of all parties involved in the case. The Defense arranged a generous plea deal resulting in a no formal finding of guilt ruling. The Client had since moved out of State during the pendency of the case and the Attorney drafted a Plea in Absentia for the Client’s convenience. The Client no longer had to return to Florida to deal with the charges. The Client is now eligible to have his records expunged.
