State v. JF

Charges: DV Assault, Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon, Reckless Conduct with a Firearm

Results: NOT GUILTY on all Felony Charges, Guilty of Misdemeanor DV Assault

A former US Special Forces member faced a tumultuous legal battle after a confrontation with his fiance turned violent. Accused of multiple felonies involving a firearm and domestic violence misdemeanors, the client faced a challenging situation. The defense team strategically gathered evidence, including plot surveys and extensive photographs, to challenge witness perceptions and create doubt. Despite an attractive plea offer, the client chose to go to trial, banking on a self-defense theory. After a 3-day trial and over 2 days of deliberation, the jury returned NOT GUILTY verdicts on all charges except one misdemeanor. Although it appeared to be a compromise verdict, the client found satisfaction in being acquitted of the most severe charges.
