Case Result Date: July 21, 2021
Practice Area: Domestic Battery
Outcome: Charges Reduced
Description: People v. TJ, 21 DV 5046401 | My client was drinking with his wife. He struck her in the head with a bottle causing a serious cut requiring stitches and staples. The case could easily have been upgraded to a Felony Aggravated Domestic Battery based on the nature of the injuries. After presenting mitigation to the State’s Attorney’s Office, including the fact that my client is a senior citizen with health issues, his Domestic Battery charge was reduced to a Simple Battery in return for court supervision and anger management courses.
