Case Number 12-XXXXXXMM10A
Charge: Domestic Violence Battery
Facts: The defendant was accused of strangling his girlfriend and throwing her around the laundry room. There were pictures of injuries to the alleged victims neck and face as well as a 911 call that implicated the defendant. The defendant hired Mr. Sobel after one year of the case pending in court with another attorney. The defendant was upset with his prior attorney who only wanted the defendant to take a plea indicating that this case was a loser due to the photographs.
Outcome: The case went to trial and the defendant was found NOT GUILTY despite the photographs and 911 tape. Mr. Sobel was able to extensively cross examine the victim showing that her injuries (the photos) were not consistent with her account of what happened.
