Mr. H was arrested for domestic assault by beating and using threatening language after his girlfriend, Ms. R, filed a complaint. According to the offence, he went to her house to retrieve one of his items. A verbal fight ensured, and Ms. R claimed that he kicked her in an attempt to leave the flat. After, while dropping his son off at her house, she claimed he used threatening language towards her, and she feared for her safety.
Our Defence Lawyers’ Efforts:
As our client was facing false charges of assault, our defence lawyers were ruthlessly determined to prove his innocence. Our lawyers immediately requested all available evidence, including body camera footage and CCTV from the apartment building, and worked with forensic experts to verify the defendant’s claims. Our client argued that he was simply defending himself, and when the situation escalated, he left the flat to avoid further conflict.
The prosecution claimed that he kicked the complainant in the upper arm, but our defence solicitors, with the help of forensic experts, pointed out that it would be physically impossible for a bulky man like our client to do so while standing. Additionally, the prosecution accused our client of using threatening language, but we discovered that the conversation took place from a distance of at least 5 meters, and the foul language used was not a threat of violence, but simply a foul word used in the heat of the moment – which is not illegal.
During the trial, our defence lawyers submitted overwhelming evidence that pointed to our client’s innocence of assault charges, and his repeated attempts to avoid any violence. Our lawyers also submitted evidence of the numerous flaws in the prosecution’s case, proving that these allegations are completely unfounded. Vindicated, our client was acquitted of all false charges.
