BATTERY – DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

County: Orange

Our client and his girlfriend were verbally arguing as they were leaving dinner. The girlfriend reached into our client’s pocket in an attempt to take his phone. Our client grabbed her wrist to prevent her from taking his phone. A passer-by, having not witnessed the entire sequence of events, saw our client grab a woman’s wrist, thought he was trying to strong-arm rob the woman, and called the police. Our client was, unfortunately, arrested. Criminal Trial Expert, Benjamin Jones saw that cooler heads prevailed and that law enforcement, as well as prosecutors understood the full context of what one person thought they saw. Quickly opening this line of communication with the prosecution helped to facilitate no charges ever being filed against our client.
