Felony Domestic Charge Dismissed
During a fight with his girlfriend, our client was alleged to have broken her phone while she attempted to contact police. He was charged with felony intimidation of a victim, as well as misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, battery and criminal damage to property. Attorney Verhoff negotiated settlement of the case with the prosecutor. He convinced the District Attorney's Office to dismiss the felony charge outright. On the remaining charges, he was able to get the prosecutor to agree to a deferred prosecution agreement, meaning the remaining charges will be dismissed after a period of time, provided the client stays out of trouble. Our client, who lives in a different state, had no prior criminal history was thrilled with the outcome.
