Simple Assault – Dismissed

A Callaghan & Callaghan client found himself in a very difficult situation. Our client was accused of a crime that he did not commit. Unfortunately, as is the case in many instances, alcohol contributed to the situation. To compound matters, after the arrest, a local news outlet picked up on the arrest. The client’s well known name was prominently displayed on a local news website. Callaghan & Callaghan immediately reached out to the reporter and conveyed the client’s complete belief in his innocence. The reporter then edited the news post to reflect our client’s innocence. Callaghan & Callaghan then engaged the police department, complainant, and city solicitor in an extensive discussion involving the weaknesses of the case. At the first pre-trial the matter was dismissed and expunged. Callaghan & Callaghan also reached out to the website administrator and had the original posting deleted. Our full service approach helped our client on a number of levels.
