Jury Finds Our Client Not Guilty of Assault Upon Montgomery County Police Officer

Posted on: September 23rd, 2013  |  No Comments

On September 18, 2013 our client appeared for a jury trial before the Honorable Joseph Dugan in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, after having been initially charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, one count of affray, one count of second degree assault upon a police officer, and one count of disorderly conduct. All charges, but for the assault upon a police officer, were dismissed in open court prior to the jury’s finding of Not Guilty as to the assault count. On September 19, 2013 after only two hours of deliberations the jury returned a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty. The client was the subject of completely unfounded charges but the State seemed “hell bent” on getting a conviction even if the facts of the case did not warrant the client being charged initially. Justice was well served on September 19, 2013.
