In a recent case, our client was charged with battery when she came to the aid of her sister who was involved in a fight with a man. The officer's charged our client with battery because they believed that our client was not acting in defense of another. This arrest was particularly harmful to our client as her work for employment could not continue if she had a criminal record.
Our firm took on the case and set her case for jury trial; we provided the State Attorney with additional evidence showing that our client was acting in defense of another. On the day of the trial, the State dropped all charges against our client and see was able to keep her record from showing a criminal conviction.
