- Result: DISMISSED by the Commonwealth
- Criminal Defense
Young woman was charged with allegedly committing an assault and battery on another woman. The evidence was flimsy and was alleged by the victim, who was also charged with Threatening Phone calls against our client. The Commonwealth refused initially to dismiss the charge against our client and we pursued by requesting all documents related to the alleged assault and battery that occurred at a local national chain store from the Commonwealth. Through extensive Discovery demands (formal request for documents, including video surveillance) on the Commonwealth, which failed to produce responsive documents to the requests, our law firm filed a Motion to Compel said documents. Prior to a Hearing before a Judge on the Motion to Compel, the Commonwealth at our repetitive requests to Dismiss the charge due to lack of any evidence, Dismissed the Assault and Battery Charge.
