Dismissed & Sealed

My client was charged with Domestic Violence Harassment (a Class 3 Misdemeanor). The allegations were incredibly minor (in other words-stupid). Initially, the deputy district attorney absolutely refused to consider dismissing the case or to offer a Pre Plea Investigation Report (PPIR) that could result in dismissal because the alleged victim, a vengeful ex-boyfriend, wanted to see my client, his ex-girlfriend, convicted. We set the case for trial. At the pre-trial readiness conference, I was able to convince the deputy district attorney to offer the PPIR they initially refused to offer. My client completed the evaluation, and the evaluator determined it was not a battering incident. The deputy district attorney dismissed the case at the next court date, and I moved for the case to be immediately sealed.
