Domestic Violence Assault (4th Degree) — Teenager Fabricates Allegation Against Father
RESULT | Dismissed
A teenager with a prior drug and mental health history accused his father of assault, alleging that the father punched him and ran over his foot with a car. The father had no prior criminal history and was a legal professional with his own business. After interviewing witnesses, compiling evidence about the teenager and the father, as well as obtaining pictures taken of the teenager by law enforcement, the defense was able to persuade the prosecution that the allegation was fabricated and the case was dismissed.
