Dismissed & Sealed

My client was charged with Domestic Violence Assault 3 (a Class 1 Misdemeanor) and Harassment (a Class 3 Misdemeanor). My client was adamant that the alleged victim in the case was lying in order to gain an advantage with child custody in an imminent divorce, and that the injuries the alleged victim claimed my client caused were there prior to the night she claimed she received them. I had my client complete a polygraph examination, which he passed. I also obtained sworn affidavits from two witnesses that would testify that the injuries the alleged victim claimed to have received had, in fact, been there previous to the night in question. I presented the polygraph results and affidavits to the deputy district attorney, who subsequently dismissed the case.
