Case #: 09XXXXMXXX2508 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
Officers of the Port St. Lucie Police Department were dispatched to a bar in reference to a possible fight. Upon scene, two witnesses told the officers the Defendant punched his sister and forcefully pulled her from his car in the parking lot. The defendant was immediately arrested. The Prosecutor offered the Defendant 45 days in jail. After the Defendant hired the Ticket Clinic to represent him, Defense Counsel aggressively began investigating the alleged facts. Defense Counsel learned the witnesses were biased against the Defendant from a previous altercation. This bias may have caused the witnesses to exaggerate or be dishonest about the facts. Additionally, Defense Counsel learned the alleged victim denied being touched by the Defendant. Defense Counsel immediately filed legal documents which, if granted, would allow Defense Counsel to extensively question the bias witnesses prior to trial. The witnesses became uncooperative with the prosecution against the Defendant. The Assistant State Attorney dropped all charges against the Defendant.
