Assault Crimes

Dismissal for Man Charged with Assault on a Female

At Randall & Stump, PLLC, our client was charged with assault on a female after being accused of assaulting his ex-wife in front of their minor son, while driving down the road. After an investigation, we found that our client was actually the one assaulted, but police failed to arrest and charge the ex-wife. Once in court, we showed that she had a long history of not only making false claims such as the one in this case, but also of taking retaliatory measures against our client, including fleeing the State with their son because he would not give her money. Once faced with this information, which destroyed the ex-wife’s credibility, the State opted to dismiss the case against our client.
