Domestic Violence Defense

STATE OF FLORIDA vs. DAVID HENRY

Case Summary

Our client was charged with Domestic Violence and Improper Exhibition of Deadly Weapon (Firearm), which was originally charged as a felony. Delgado & Romanik’s domestic violence lawyers demanded a speedy trial, picked a jury, and went immediately to trial. The judge granted our Judgment of Acquittal as to the Weapon charge, finding insufficient evidence to let the charge go forward.

Our defense for this case was self-defense—our client was attacked by his girlfriend with a knife. When he disarmed her, the knife snapped during the struggle and she cut herself. Our client had bite marks on his forearms. We argued that any physical contact was necessary to stop her from hurting him. After 45 minutes of deliberation, the jury returned with a Not Guilty verdict.

Building a Domestic Violence Defense

It is not uncommon with domestic violence charges that the alleged victim simply wanted to get away from the other person and made the altercation seem worse than it really was in the heat of anger. Our domestic violence lawyers will examine the credibility of the alleged victim, the responding officers’ conduct, the police report, and any eyewitness statements while building the most effective defense for the case. We have successfully cleared clients of misdemeanor and felony domestic violence charges, including cases where the victims’ stories were made up to get an advantage in a divorce or child custody dispute
