Domestic Assault Charges Continued for Dismissal
Date: October 2020
Case: 5th Degree Assault, Domestic Assault, and Disorderly Conduct
Attorney: Michael J. Brandt
Result: Mike’s client was charged with 5th Degree Assault, Domestic Assault, and Disorderly Conduct in Washington County. As part of his preparation for the case, Mike utilized an investigator to interview witnesses to clarify what happened and Mike had his client do some proactive steps to show that this was an isolated incident. Based on this information, Mike was able to negotiate a “continuance for dismissal,” which means if Mike’s client successfully completes all the conditions of the agreement, the case will be dismissed in a year. Mike’s client not only avoids a conviction on his record but is also eligible for an expungement.
