Domestic Violence Battery Case Dismissed Over Fabricated Evidence

The Defendant was charged with Count I: Felony Battery (Domestic Strangulation), Count II: False Imprisonment, Count III: Battery, Count IV: Violating Pre-Trial Release/Domestic Violence Restraining Order.

The Defendant’s ex-girlfriend kicked him out of his apartment, called the police and totally fabricated the allegations against him. Tom O’Connell was able to take the deposition of law enforcement, completed a thorough background search on the victim, and the State announced a Nolle Prosequi as to Count I through IV on February 9, 2010.
