Tourist with extensive prior record arrested for pushing & shoving womanThree criminal charges: no conviction!
Our Client was vacationing in Florida and accused of engaging in a physical fight with a woman peddling items on the street. Police were called and our Client fled on foot. Police apprehended our Client and charged him with Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest. Defendant failed to appear at a Pretrial Hearing and the Court issued a Bench Warrant for his arrest. RESULT: Attorney filed a Motion to Set Aside the Bench Warrant; the Motion was granted, vacating the Warrant. Attorney Musca successfully convinced the State they would be unable to meet the burden of proof to secure a conviction. The State agreed to a formal no finding of guilt on both the Battery Charge and Resisting Arrest Charge. The Disorderly Conduct Charge was dismissed completely!
