We successfully demonstrated to the prosecutor that our client Virginia was acting in self-defense and got the case dismissed within 30 days.
Virginia was afraid of facing criminal charges for defending her own well-being. She also had some mental health issues that were being made worse by the stress of the case.
Virginia O. lived with the father of her child who was very abusive in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. One day he was threatening and choking her. In self-defense, she grabbed the closest thing she could reach, which was a fork, and stabbed him with it. When the cops showed up at their house, they saw the fork sticking out of his leg and arrested her instead of him.
This was clearly self-defense. Virginia had a huge black eye from this man, which showed he was the one attacking her. The cops also did a very poor investigation and didn’t bother to find out what happened or who should have been arrested.
