Case Results

State v. R.C.

October 2019

Client was charged with two counts of Gross Misdemeanor Domestic Assault, one alleging intentional bodily harm, the other committing an act to cause fear of immediate bodily harm.

Client has a conviction for Domestic Assault which made both these charges Gross-Misdemeanors. In addition, the Judge allowed the Jury to hear about this prior conviction. To boot, the conviction was against the same alleged victim.

However, thankfully the alleged victim was recanting. The two of them maintained that they had accidentally collided with each-other in the midst of a silly argument.

In the end, even with a prior conviction, and even with the State attempting to cast the alleged victim as an ex-wife trying to keep her ex-husband out of jail by taking back the entire story, I convinced the Jury that the State failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this incident was anything more than just an accident.

The jury very quickly came back with a verdict of "Not Guilty" on both counts and the Client was acquitted of both charges. 

A victory!
