Misdemeanor Domestic Battery & Criminal Threats

defending a nurseClient, a Registered Nurse, was arrested after allegedly striking his wife and threatening to kill her with a knife.

After my own investigation, separate from the police, I was able to show the prosecutor that, while there may have been an unwanted physical contact, there was no threat to the wife involving a knife.

The client accepted responsibility for the alleged battery and received probation. The criminal threats charge was dismissed.
