Acquittal in the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County

Posted on: January 13th, 2014  |  No Comments

This office successfully defended a young man in a domestic violence (second degree assault) case brought by his wife. The defendant offered a plea of not guilty and his wife invoked her marital privilege not to testify. In spite of the fact that the defendant’s wife refused to testify the State continued to prosecute this matter by attempting to enter the wife’s medical records into evidence. However during our preparation for trial we realized that the State did not give timely notice of their intent to offer this business record. The court accepted our objection to the late notice and refused to allow the medical records into evidence and thereafter acquitted our client of all charges.
