Case No: 13-XXXXXXMM10A
Facts: It was alleged that the defendant got into a verbal altercation with his ex-wife outside his residence while she sat in her car. The alleged victim stated that the defendant reached into her vehicle and grabbed her by the wrist. In response to the defendant grabbing her wrist, she accelerated the car to get the defendant to let go of her wrist.
Outcome: Mr. Sobel ran his own investigation and was able to list two witnesses who provided deposition testimony that the defendant never entered the vehicle. Additionally, Mr. Sobel was able to take the facts asserted by the alleged victim and show that it was not possible for her story to actually happen the way that she said it did.
On the date of trial, the Office of the State Attorney dismissed the charges against the defendant.
