No jail, no probation following assault of wife

2020

Our client was arrested for reportedly grabbing and slamming his wife on the floor of their apartment which was witnessed by his wife’s child. Our client was facing up to a year of jail. The prosecutor wanted to bring our client to trial and had recommended a six month sentence to the judge based on the injuries, our client’s lack of remorse, and the strength of their case because they had an eye witness. We provided mitigating information that showed the prosecutor that there was more to the story that what she was told. After lengthy negotiations, we arrived at a substantially improved deal that avoided jail all together. Case resolved with a misdemeanor, no jail, no probation, counseling.
