NO CHARGES IN FELONY CHILD ABUSE CASE
Local police arrested our client for child abuse after she had an altercation with her teenage son. Upon advice from a different, Madison-based criminal defense lawyer, the client's family contacted Attorney Tim Verhoff for help. His first step was to get the client out of jail as quickly as possible. He then went to work negotiating a possible resolution of the case before a formal charge was issued. Based on his negotiations with the prosecution, Attorney Verhoff worked out an agreement by which the DA agreed not to file formal charges against the client, provided she successfully completed a deferred prosecution contract. Spared the embarrassment, anxiety, and other complications stemming from a formal criminal prosecution, the client was delighted with the outcome achieved.
