Not Guilty

NOT GUILTY (X2)! Today, my client was acquitted of DV Assault 4 and Exposing Minors to DV. The latter carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 days in jail. The City presented FIVE witnesses, whereas my client was the only witness for the defense. She claimed SELF-DEFENSE, which meant the entire trial came down to that single issue, “Was it self-defense?” Thankfully, the jury saw it our way and acquitted her of both charges! Going to trial is always stressful, especially when the prosecution stacks the deck with five witnesses. I am very pleased the jury saw it our way and that my client can finally relax and enjoy today’s sunshine!
