My client, a soldier based at Fort Carson, was accused of assaulting his girlfriend and tearing off her acrylic fingernails. Despite my client passing a polygraph, the deputy district attorney refused to dismiss the case. Through the use of social media and text messages, expert testimony from a cosmetologist, and a critical and analytical look at the evidence, I was able to demonstrate that the alleged victim tore her own nails off while tearing wire shelving off of the wall in a fury. The jury came back with a not-guilty verdict in less than twenty minutes. The case was sealed.
