Simple Assault Charge Withdrawn In Domestic SituationSep 08 2015 in Assault and Domestic Violence, Case Results
A 33-year-old Pittsburgh man was charged with simple assault in relation to a domestic situation. His girlfriend at the time decided to prosecute against him. The man hired Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna who then suggested they both take a period of 90 days to cool off. Within the 90 days, the couple ended up making up and the woman, now his fiancée, did not wish to pursue the case any longer. The officer who had observed her injuries that night could not establish how her injuries were caused without her testifying against her boyfriend. The case was then withdrawn.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
