Domestic Violence Charge for US Army Soldier Dismissed

CHARGE

Domestic Violence

RESULT

Dismissal

A citizen outside the Serramonte shopping mall called the police after observing my client arguing with his girlfriend and throwing her to the ground. The citizen called the police who were right around the corner and my client was arrested. My client was in the United States Army and if he suffered a conviction for a domestic violence, he would have a lifetime federal ban on his right to own, purchase or possess firearms. Additionally, he would have had a 10 year ban in California on his firearms rights as well. My client couldn't get convicted of domestic violence otherwise he believed that his career in the Army would have been over. After doing everything we could, my client's domestic violence charged was dismissed by the prosecutor. My client pled nolo contendre to a misdemeanor violation of disturbing the peace by loud and unreasonable noise (Penal Code ┬ž 415(2)) and received no jail time or community service or domestic violence classes as a condition of probation. My client was able to retain his firearms rights and keep his career.
