Our client and girlfriend got into an argument where it was alleged that the client slapped the girlfriend several times in the face, leaving marks and bruising. After taking pictures of the girlfriend’s face, our client was charged with assault and a warrant was placed for his arrest.
The client maintained his innocence from the beginning. Tucker Richardson, lead attorney on the case, met with the client and reviewed the police documents. While investigating the claims, the client advised that his girlfriend was attempting to contact him and had hinted she would come clean and admit the fabrication. Tucker was able to amend the bond conditions to allow our client and the girlfriend to communicate with each other while the case was still pending. Over the next few weeks, the girlfriend admitted that she had slapped herself several times in the face to make it appear that our client had assaulted her. After sharing that information with the Government’s attorney, all charges were dismissed.
Lead Attorney: Tucker Richardson
