Assault Family Violence- Not Guilty
Our client was on trial for assaulting his then girlfriend. She told police that the injuries on her hand, elbow and neck were from him assaulting and choking her. Our client was told by police at the scene that he was under arrest "because she has injuries and I wasn't here to see it so I have to take her word for it." We made sure the jury understood they did not have to take her word for anything and after 22 minutes of deliberation, they found our client not guilty.
