Practice Area:Criminal defense
Outcome: Motion for Judgment of Acquittal Granted
Description: Our client was charged with Violation of Injunction. The victim in the case lives out of state. The State Attorney’s Office tried to back door identification of the victim and prove the elements of the crime without the victim’s testimony.
We made several objections and prepared case law for the Judge. Ultimately, we made the argument that the Judge should grant a Motion for Judgement of Acquittal.
In basic terms, the Judge dismissed the case in the middle of trial before it even came to a decision of Guilty vs. Not Guilty. A happy client and a happy day.
