Our client was charged with Felonious Assault for assaulting another man
at a volleyball tournament. Our client pushed the other man and he fell
off the bleachers breaking his leg in two places. The Prosecutor's
Office was upset with our client for the way he handled the situation
and the fact that he resorted to violence at a children's volleyball
game. During the course of our investigation we discovered that another
spectator had been operating a camera. Although there was not any video
footage of the assault we were able to provide to the Prosecutor an audio
recording which clearly showed the other man being the aggressor. With
that information the Prosecutor's Office offered a misdemeanor assault.
Our client rejected that offer and we went to trial. After three days
of trial the Jury returned a not guilty verdict.
