In October 2017, we were retained to assist Kristen on a domestic violence charge that was filed in 2015. Once we discussed the case with the client, we determined that there were two issues that were pressing. First, she appeared to be innocent to the charges. The prosecutor in this case filed charges against her when the charges had no merit. Second, the incident occurred in 2015 and she didn’t know about the charges until 2017 when she went to do a background interview and it came up that she had an outstanding warrant.
We appeared in court and tried talking to the prosecutor informally about dropping the charges as she was innocent. Unfortunately, this prosecutor didn’t see the case the same way we did. Therefore, after our initial attempt to resolve it informally didn’t work, we filed a MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE (CLICK HERE FOR A COPY OF THE MOTION TO DISMISS). The motion was filed on 11/7/18.

On 11/29/2017, our motion to dismiss was heard. The prosecutor in the case agreed to dismiss the case against Kristen on that date. CLICK HERE FOR THE DISMISSAL ON 11/29/17.
At KIA LAW FIRM, we don’t just recall warrants to plead clients guilty. Rather, we focus on you, the client. We determine the best course of action and outcome that suits your needs. Here, Kristen deserved nothing short of a dismissal. She can continue with her career without any criminal blemishes on her record. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
