Assault and Domestic Violence Charges Dismissed

CHARGE

Assault With a Deadly Weapon

RESULT

Dismissal

My client was charged with a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence causing a corporal injury to his spouse. My client was not a US citizen and he faced deportation if he was convicted of both of these charges. Due to intensive pretrial investigation of the case, we believed that it would be in my client's best interest to proceed to trial on a time not waived basis, i.e., insisting upon a speedy trial. Despite the fact that my client's wife was cooperative with the prosecution and her son corroborated his mother's version of events, we were still able to get a complete dismissal of the assault with a deadly weapon charge as well as the domestic violence charge. My client was eventually offered an infraction disturbing the peace charge which he accepted because it would not have any negative immigration consequences for him, and it would not lead to him losing his job. This was a huge win for my client.
