3 more outstanding results- Felony dismissed at preliminary hearing
The first case is out of Dane County: a felony battery. The client was charged with striking a person on a downtown Madison street. That person fell down, struck their head and lost consciousness. The Dane County DA's office has a policy of not attempting to resolve cases before preliminary hearings. We here at Chirafisi & Verhoff have a policy of not waiving preliminary hearings for no reason.
At the preliminary hearing, the officer testified to our client's version as to what had occurred. The prosecutor never asked the officer about any other version of what had happened. The Court, armed with only the version set forth by our client, found that the state had not established probable cause and the felony was dismissed.
