Domestic battery on a pregnant person

CASE DISMISSED

Date: August, 2019

Court: Okaloosa County Circuit Court

Details:

Criminal defense case results for Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and surrounding areasOur Client retained the Office knowing that a warrant would issue for the charge of Domestic Battery on a Pregnant Person. Often times the smart move is to retain an attorney as soon as possible so that he or she can get a jump on the case. This case proves that point. Normally, a defendant will be looking at an excessive amount of bail money for this charge., Being retained early in the case was a wise choice as we were able to obtain a $2,500 bond for which the client paid a bondsman $250.00.

I filed a Motion for Specific Discovery in this case demanding that the State turn over all the evidence it had of the alleged victim’s prior record, propensity for violence and all mitigation materials known as Brady Evidence.

Outcome: Pressing the State to prove its case and to turn over all damaging materials is always in order. The case was dismissed a bit over two weeks after filing the Motion for Specific Discovery
