Second Domestic Violence Assault Charge Involving Same Alleged Victim
RESULT | Dismissed
Repeat client whose domestic violence case was previously dismissed, hired Jennifer Horwitz a second time when his same girlfriend accused him of assault for a second time. After reviewing all of the evidence, it was clear that the client had locked his girlfriend out of the house because she was intoxicated and out of control and that no assault took place. Someone who saw the girlfriend walking around in their yard crying and intoxicated called the police. The girlfriend was angry about having been locked out and said the client assaulted her. After presenting all of the evidence to the prosecutor, the prosecutor agreed it could not prove an assault had occurred and dismissed the case, even though this was the second time this woman had alleged an assault by the client (the first case was also dismissed).
