How Can I Tell You What Happened If I Barely Remember That Night?
A: As long as we have your full name and DOB, we can submit initial documents with Scottsdale Court letting them know we are representing you. We will request the police report and body camera of the event. This will give us all the information we will need to know about the event.
I Wasn’t The Aggressor, Why Am I Being Charged With Assault?
A: Anytime there is a large group, the police officers have a difficult time figuring out what exactly happened. I’m definitely not saying I agree with the police officers. Arresting or citing everyone involved is a lazy way of policing. The courts shouldn’t be left having to figure out who was at fault. Unfortunately, once the police cite or arrest a person, they are now faced with the criminal justice system and will have to prove their innocence in a court of law.
I Was Charged With Domestic Violence, But My Partner Doesn’t Want To Prosecute. Shouldn’t This Case Be Dismissed.
A: Scottsdale Court will not dismiss your case just because the “victim” no longer wants to prosecute. They will subpoena the victim. If the victim doesn’t show up to trial, they will issue a warrant for contempt of court and continue moving forward with your case. This is why Scottsdale is one of the hardest cities on Domestic Violence.
