Charge Dropped to Misdemeanor
RESULTS: 1st Degree Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon Charge Dropped to Misdemeanor Deferred Assault.

Our Client was charged with threatening to kill his wife with a handgun, choking her, and striking her several times.

Client hired Mr. Blizzard to fight these charges.

Mr. Blizzard fought hard in preparation for a hotly contested trial where several experts were lined up to testify about the falseness of these claims, and how the evidence did not match up with the allegations made.

The consistent pushing by Mr. Blizzard was able to get the case knocked down from a 1st Degree Felony Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon to an assault charge where Client must complete one year of deferred adjudication probation.

When the Client successfully completes the probation, the case against him will be dismissed without a conviction.
