Assault on Female Dismissed for College Grad
On behalf of Randall & Stump, PLLC in on Friday, January 10, 2020
After a night out with his girlfriend, a recent college graduate got into an argument with his girlfriend on the balcony of their apartment complex. The argument became loud enough for someone to notify police, and when they arrived, they perceived what they thought were injuries on the woman. This led to felony charges for assault on a female, which exposed him to jail time and an unflattering conviction on his record as he started out in his career.
We walked the young man through the entire process and appeared with him in court. By negotiating with the prosecutor, and highlighting the lack of any witness to the injuries, we secured a dismissal. As a result, the young man saw no repercussions and was free to put this stressful situation behind him.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
