Felony Charges Against Juvenile Dropped

In a recent case, the criminal lawyers of Thomas & Paulk represented a student who was charged with felony battery after getting into a fight with a peer at school; the other student was injured during the fight. We took on the case and argued that just because two people were fighting does not mean that it necessitates a criminal charge of battery—especially if the two people mutually agreed to the fight. At the adjudicatory hearing, the State was unable to go forward on the charges, so we filed a motion for the court to dismiss the felony charges. Our motion was granted, and we were successful in getting the charges fully dismissed.
