RESULT | Dismissed
A professional man in his sixties, with a loving family and successful career, had no prior criminal history but was having trouble in his marriage over an issue that had angered his wife. As he and his wife were verbally arguing, he requested that she leave him alone to take a shower. The wife proceeded to follow the man into the bathroom and continue to argue with him. The man pushed the woman out of the bathroom. The woman called 911 and the man was charged with domestic violence assault. After presenting the prosecution with information about the man, and the man attending a two-hour class about domestic violence, the prosecution agreed to dismiss the case.
