Domestic Violence Charge Nets Not Guilty Verdict

Our client found himself in an argument with his wife while the couple was going through a separation.  Emotions took over and the two found themselves becoming physical with each other.  When our client attempted to take his cell phone back from his wife, a struggle ensued and the two ended up on the ground.  Our client was on top of his wife when his stepson called 911.  When deputies arrived, they took statements, photographs of the alleged injuries, and filed domestic violence charges against our client.

Domestic violence is one of the most — if not the most — serious misdemeanor charges.  The offense is a 1st degree misdemeanor and it is enhanceable to a felony after a first offense.  During pretrial negotiations, the prosecuting attorney offered a plea to the charge with a recommendation of 90 days incarceration.  Being a father and working full-time, our client would have lost his job and his ability to care for his children.

Upon the advice of Columbus Criminal Defense team attorney Chase Mallory, the offer was rejected and the matter proceeded to jury trial.  After only 30 minutes of deliberation, the jury agreed that there was insufficient evidence to warrant a conviction.  Our client was found not guilty and walked out of the courtroom and back to his career as a free man.
