Domestic Violence Victim Avoids Falsification Charge

During a trial for a domestic violence charge, the victim in the case recanted from the story she told the police when she called 911. The county prosecutor’s office was still able to obtain a conviction against the defendant, but proceeded to file falsification charges against our client because they didn’t like her testimony at the domestic violence trial.

Our client, a single mother, was now facing a first-degree misdemeanor for falsification.  She contacted our office and Attorney Chase Mallory entered an appearance on her behalf.  After receiving discovery, it appeared the county prosecutor and deputy made an error when charging our client with falsification that would make it extremely difficult for the city prosecutor to reach a conviction.  Fortunately, at a pretrial hearing the city law director’s office had the foresight to recognize the problems with the falsification case, and the bad policy to prosecute victims, and agreed to a dismissal of the falsification case.
