Our client was charged with 3rd Degree Assault as an act of Domestic Violence. They faced a potential 18 month jail sentence. Our client was defending himself from a violent ex, but he was arrested after his ex went to the hospital for injuries and claimed our client had intentionally inflicted them. The alleged victim initially pursued the case, our client maintained his innocence by entering a not guilty plea, and our attorneys prepared for Trial. On the date of the trial, our attorneys learned that the District Attorney was unable to locate the alleged victim and other witnesses to the case, so they were able to get the case dismissed by the court.
