Domestic Violence Battery Charges Dropped on Day of Trial

Thomas & Paulk was proud to represent a client this year who have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence battery. This crime is defined under Florida Statutes §741.28 as the assault, battery or any criminal offense that results in either the injury or death of a family or household member.

Who is considered to be a family or household member in the state of Florida? This could be a spouse, ex-spouse, someone who is related by marriage or blood, as well as current and former roommate and even someone with whom you have a child – regardless of whether or not you are married.

In this case, our client denied that she had been involved with the crime at all and stated that it was a false accusation. We took on the case and set it for trial. On the day of the trial, the Office of the State Attorney dropped all of the charges – allowing our client to walk away with a clean criminal record.

At our firm, we are not deterred by complex criminal cases. If you have been charged, no matter the specifics of your case, it is extremely important that you do not hesitate to get the involvement of an experienced criminal lawyer you can trust.
