Our client, who was 28 years old, got into an argument with his step-father over a car and money. Our client was accused of punching his step-father in the face and head several time by his mother, who witnessed it and tried to break it up. The mother called 911 and the step-father was able to hold the Defendant on the ground until the police arrived. The step-father had visible injuries on his face and head according to the police. Our client was arrested for Battery. Ticket Clinic lawyers took over the case, entered a Not Guilty plea, reviewed all discovery and set the case for a trial. Several days before the trial was set to start, the State agreed to drop the Battery charge.
