Santa Clara County Client Not Charged with Felony Domestic Violence
In a case of creative lawyering, client was charged in a domestic violence case with a felony violation of Penal Code Section 422-(threats to commit a crime resulting in death or great bodily injury) and a misdemeanor violation of Penal Code Section 245(a)(4) – (assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury) in Northern California. After deconstructing the prosecution's case, assisting the victim in hiring her own attorney, conducting a thorough investigation and extensive negotiations with the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, we got both charges dismissed and client admitted to a petty offense of attempted vandalism (Penal Code Section 664/594). He was sentenced to only one year court probation, no jail and the remaining charge is set to be dismissed at a later date so client will have no conviction at all on his record in the future.
