The defendant was charged with a single count of Battery. The charge arose out of an incident where the defendant was alleged to have attacked one of her roommates. The police responded and many people were requesting criminal charges against each other. The defendant was charged as a result. The case was dismissed before trial could be set.
The details of this case were convoluted at best. The witnesses did not give clear statements and the police did a poor investigation. One thing that we knew for sure was that my client staunchly claimed what she had done was in self-defense in repelling an attack upon her. This case drug on for a long time. Finally, when it became clear negotiations were not going to be an option my client took a hard position that we were going to trial. The day we were going to set a trial date the District Attorney dismissed the case.
