Case #: 2017-XXXXXXXX
Our client was arrested and charged with Aggravated Battery, a felony, after police alleged she intentionally dumped hot soup on her fiancée causing him severe burns throughout his body. The prosecutor initially sought prison for our client. However, after the firm’s attorney worked through the case, he was able to determine weaknesses in the State’s theory of events. Armed this knowledge, the firm’s attorney set the State’s witnesses for depositions prepared to question them extensively. During depositions, the prosecutor requested to speak to the firm’s attorney off the record, where the attorney pointed out the weaknesses in the State’s case at length. The next day the prosecutor dropped all charges.
