Domestic violence imprisonment and assault in Queens resolved with criminal
Lance’s client was
arrested for allegedly imprisoning his wife in that he didn’t allow her to
leave and blocked all exits and assaulted her in the face and body. He was
arrested and charged with several misdemeanors including
assault in the third degree, carrying up to a year in
jail. We had helped our client in the past with other arrests and our client
was worried that, as a repeat offender, the prosecutor would be harsher.
Our client was correct – the prosecutor fought for
jail time. In the end, we were able to get it reduced to a non-criminal violation and no
jail, no probation.
