Felony Charges of Aggravated Assault Dropped

In a recent case, our client was arrested for the felony charge of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer after a disagreement with a Deputy following a parking violation. The Deputy claimed our client tried to strike him with his vehicle during this dispute. During our investigation, we found multiple discrepancies with the Officer's statements. It became clear the officer was not legally entitled to cite our client for any traffic violation and that our client did not attempt to strike the deputy with his vehicle.

Our office proved exculpatory evidence to the State Attorney and all felony charges were dropped. The State then agreed to allow our client into a misdemeanor diversion program, where after completion all charges will be dismissed.
