Acquittal of Domestic Assault Charges due to Cross-Examination

Posted in Criminal Cases (Non-Driving), Domestic Assault

My client was charged with a Domestic Assault in relation to an altercation that had occurred with his girlfriend at the time.  The matter went to trial and my client was ultimately acquitted.  The judge had serious concerns with the truthfulness of the girlfriend’s testimony based on my cross-examination that exposed several inconsistencies between her testimony at trial and her earlier statements to the police.  The judge could also not understand how my client had no injuries to his hand despite allegedly punching a glass window causing it to shatter.
