We have¬†obtained a not guilty verdict for one of our clients who was charged with domestic battery. The criminal complaint charged our client with knowingly, and without legal justification, causing bodily harm to the complaining witness, which was our client’s then wife, during a domestic dispute at our client’s residence.

During a bench trial, our attorneys successfully used the police report to impeach the complaining witness. Because of the successful impeachment, the court found the complaining witness incredible and ultimately found that the State failed to prove our client guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
