Date: November 2019
Case: Felony Domestic Assault by Strangulation, Misdemeanor Domestic Assault, Gross Misdemeanor Obstructing Legal Process
Attorney: Eric W.M. Bain
Result: Eric’s client was charged in Scott County with domestic assault for a fight with her sister and obstructing legal process for resisting arrest. Eric worked out a resolution where the felony charge would be dismissed, in exchange for pleas to the misdemeanor domestic assault and obstructing legal process reduced to a misdemeanor. Eric argued to the judge for the misdemeanor domestic assault to be a stay of adjudication, which would dismiss that charge after a year of probation with no violations. The judge granted Eric’s request for the stay of adjudication.
