Elderly client facing life for domestic incident gets pre-trial diversion

After a heated argument with her estranged husband, our client was arrested and charged with serious crimes.  Investigation and witness statements revealed that the most serious charges had no legal basis.  After we succeeded in getting them dismissed the government agreed to offer pre-trial diversion on the remaining charges, which were less serious.

Charges: Armed Burglary with Battery x 2; Tampering with Evidence; Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon; Battery on an elderly person

Time Faced: 2 Life sentences plus an additional 11 years

Result: 2 charges dismissed, pre-trial diversion on remaining charges
