No criminal record and no jail after domestic violence assault and broken
Client, a financial services professional, was
arrested for assaulting his wife and mother of his child. It was a violent assault
that allegedly resulted in a broken orbital bone. Our client faced
assault charges and up to 1 year in
jail and a permanent criminal record that would have to be reported to his
licensing agency. The prosecutor demanded a 90 day sentence which re rejected.
Just before going to trial, we obtained information that allowed us to
renegotiate. We obtained a new offer and worked out a new deal that got
rid of the
jail time and would remove the criminal (misdemeanor) conviction as long as
our client completed a program.
