Our client’s family came to us upon recommendation to assist their relative, JD, who was facing serious felony domestic charges. At the beginning of our representation, JD was in custody for aggravated assault; domestic battery by strangulation; false imprisonment, and simple battery.
Allegations, in this case, included the victim stating that our client poured gasoline on her while holding a lighter above her head.
The pretrial offer for our client, in this case, was four years in Florida State prison, and potentially 16 years total if found guilty on all charges.
Through our deposition process and while obtaining testimony at trial, the victim was discredited for a major portion of her testimony. After a two-day trial, the jury found our client, the defendant, not guilty on each felony charge and guilty only on a simple battery charge.
