Dane County Assault Charge to be Dismissed
Our client received a summons from the Sheriff’s Department informing him that he needed to come to court because the District Attorney decided to charge him with a felony battery after a road rage incident. The client did not wait until going to court to hire an attorney. He immediately contacted our office. Although the prosecution originally decided to charge our client with a felony, the criminal complaint had not been formally filed. Our lawyers contacted the District Attorney’s Office and spoke with the prosecution to provide our client’s version of the event. After talking with our lawyers, the prosecutor agreed not to charge the client with a felony assault. Instead, the District Attorney agreed to file a misdemeanor charge and recommend deferred prosecution, meaning all charges will be dismissed after our client completes the program.
