Our client Vanessa was charged with a violation of Penal Code 243(e)(1) “Domestic Violence”. She was arrested and had to post bail to be released from jail. After her release, Vanessa and Mr. Feyzjou met to discuss what had happened in her case. We determined that the best course of action would be to set the matter for trial to show that her partner was the primary aggressor and that the officers had arrested the wrong party. At first, the prosecutor wanted her to plead guilty and be placed on 36 months of summary probation and complete a 52-week domestic violence course. We rejected that offer. Once rejected, her offer then included an additional 35 days of county jail (through the work release program). That offer was also rejected. Ultimately, we discussed setting the matter for trial with the prosecutor. Following that discussion, the prosecutor agreed to review our evidence in support of her self-defense issues. After careful evaluation from a very well respected prosecutor who was assigned the case, she agreed to dismiss the entire case. Vanessa is now a free woman, not facing any criminal charges.
