Battery and Aggravated Child Abuse charges Diverted and Dropped - Domestic Violence
Our client had an argument with his wife and knocked a phone away from her; it struck their child. Unwisely the State charged our client with Battery and Aggravated Child Abuse. The State offered probation for a guilty plea. We refused. After months of showing the State the charge required "an intentional act' and that the facts supported only an accidental act, the State diverted the case to a pretrial diversion program. Our client completed the requirements and charges were dismissed.
