Tampa Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

On January 11th, 2009, my client was arrested for battery domestic violence in Tampa, FL.  The penalty for this offense is up to one year in the Hillsborough County jail.  The State alleged that my client and spouse were involved in a verbal altercation which them turned physical.  The spouse alleged that my client was the aggressor and started the altercation.  However, my client asserted that she was not the aggressor and had evidence of bruise marks on her.  The police arrived on the scene, took information from both parties, and decided to arrest my client.  When the case got to court, I was able to persuade the State Attorney to dismiss the case.  I explained to him that my client was not the aggressor and showed him pictures of her injuries.  Based on this, the State dismissed the case and my client did not get a criminal record.
