Accuser Dismissed Petition Against Client for Domestic Violence Restraining Order

CHARGE

Domestic Violence Restraining Order

RESULT

Dismissal

My client's ex-girlfriend had accused him of some pretty nasty physical abuse that spanned the course of two years. Interestingly though, despite police responding to the scene over the course of these two years, my client was never arrested or prosecuted. Determining the reason why my client wasn't arrested depends upon who you ask – a defense attorney or a plaintiff's attorney. A defense attorney like myself would tell you it's because the officers' didn't have probable cause to believe that my client had committed acts of domestic violence. A plaintiff's attorney would tell you that it is very common for an officer not to make an arrest regardless of whether the officer thinks that the crime occurred or not. In any event, I am a defense attorney, and in this case we filed my client's response to the accuser's claims of domestic violence. When my client's accuser was confronted with my client's coherent and exculpatory response my client's accuser dismissed her petition in open court. My client was able to save his job, the risk of future prosecution for violating the court's order, and from being labeled as a “woman beater.”
