The Rossen Law Firm provided an aggressive defense to client Michael R. who was charged with battery on a police officer in Boca Raton. The case dismissed within 30 days after proving Michael’s innocence.
Michael is an extremely intelligent honors student in college who is studying to become a financial advisor. Michael was scared that this criminal charge would ruin his education and future career. Michael is just a regular guy who did not want a gun charge on his record. He was scared of being charged with a felony. He was scared of going to prison.
Michael was drinking at a bar when he thought that someone must have slipped something into his drink. Michael was not acting as he normally would. A police officer tried to help him by putting him in a cab to go home. As the cop was putting him in the car, Michael reached over and slammed the car door. He also spat in the officer’s face in the process. The officer then arrested Michael and charged him with battery on a police officer.
We got a statement from the police officer, who expressed that he felt extremely bad for Michael and also thought that he was drugged. We truly believe something was slipped into Michael’s drink on the night of the incident. Because of that, we used the involuntary intoxication defense in the case. As a result, we were able to prove Michael’s innocence and have the case dismissed.
