Alexandria #Assault #Battery. Client allegedly beat her married boyfriend and his wife upon going to their apartment to share that she was pregnant. BLF prepared case for TRIAL - client maintained her innocence through out speaking with Attorney Bose and assured the Firm that she was simply defending herself. Case Dismissed. WIN!

In Virginia Assault and Battery cases, one of the fundamental issues is Primary Aggressor.  Who was the Primary Aggressor? If the Primary Aggressor was not the person charged, the defense strategy is always to assert the affirmative defense of Self Defense.

In trials for #Assault and #Battery, if Self Defense is asserted, the burden falls on the defense to prove the Self Defense.  This is achieved through careful cross examination of the Government witnesses and usually requires the Defense to place the Defendant on the stand.  This must be carefully weighed and much preparation is required.

In this case, the Firm prepared the case fully for trial.  All aspects of the case including actual physical movements during the altercation were reviewed and parsed.

Prince William Assault and Battery | Domestic Abuse

Prince William County #Domestic #Assault #Battery. Client is husband with Security Clearance on hold for this charge.

Defense Strategy: A blend of equitable and legal arguments.  The essence of the case was the client allegedly slapped and pushed his wife in a heater battle over money.  Our client and his wife disagreed on sequence of events, but Attorney Sudeep Bose, a former police officer, thought that the strike was in self defense and that the wife was the primary aggressor (both legal defenses). 

Prosecutor's first offer was continuance under the Code for 1st time Offender.  This was unnacceptable as Attorney Bose has always stated that dismissals conditioned upon a guilty plea are NOT TRUE dismissals.

After several negotiations with the Prosecutor, attorney Bose was able to generally continue the matter for a true DISMISSAL.

Case result: CASE DISMISSAL! WIN!

Fairfax ‪#‎Domestic‬ ‪#‎Assault‬ and ‪#‎Battery‬ from February 2015

Fairfax ‪#‎Domestic‬ ‪#‎Assault‬ and ‪#‎Battery‬.

Client, an immigrant, was charged with domestic assault and battery of his Indian spouse. Wife also filed a motion for a preliminary protective order stating that she is scared of her husband.

Wife's attorney kept insisting the husband sign a settlement agreement for the preliminary protective order prior to the criminal triamaking the husband liable for the mortgage and other costs for the wife (unemployed). BLF advised against it as there was no assurance that the wife would remain silent during the trial and help our client in any manner.

Today, at trial, my suspicions were proven correct. The wife decided long ago that the marriage was over and that she wanted nothing more to do with our client - she needed a conviction for assault and battery to protect her own immigration status under the battered spouse exception.

Result: After a trial and pointing out the inconsistent statements of the wife to the police and Judge, we got the Judge to continue the case for a DISMISSAL after class and probation. No jail, No fine.
