Lake County, Florida – Our client was charged with felony battery with strangulation and witness intimidation. He was released on bond and ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim. Subsequently, it was alleged that he violated the no contact order by having contact and by committing the new charges of sexual battery, lewd and lascivious exhibition, domestic battery by strangulation. This caused his bond to get revoked and he was held in custody without release. Longwell Lawyers engaged in discovery, depositions, and filed a motion to dismiss, causing the state to drop the Felony Battery charge. The client elected to resolve the witness intimidation charge with a no contest plea that resulted in no conviction and no additional incarceration. As a result, he was released from jail immediately.
