DISMISSED - Penal Code 242 Battery Case Dropped
Client was charged with Penal Code 242 (Battery) for a physical altercation that occurred between him and a neighbor. In negotiations with the prosecution, we presented defense evidence to support a self-defense theory and discredit the alleged victim's account. As a result, the prosecution agreed to dismiss the case entirely. Client received no conviction meaning no jail, probation, fines, nothing. If you find yourself charged with assault or battery, be sure to consult with a lawyer about whether you have a decent argument for self-defense. Call me, free of charge, at 888-DROPJAIL.
