Client arrested and charged with Domestic Violence
For the second time in a week, Sullivan & Brill announces a major victory in our client's criminal case in Brooklyn Criminal Court. In this New York criminal case, client was arrested in Brooklyn for: criminal contempt in the 1st and 2nd degree, endangering the welfare of ta child, attempted assault in the 3 rd degree, menacing in the 3 rd degree, and harassment in the 2 nd degree. The incident stemmed from a dispute client had with his wife and teenage son. After Client was arrested, his wife and son were granted a full Order of Protection, which meant that the client was ordered to remain away from his own home for the pendency of the case. New York Criminal Attorneys, Steven Brill and James Healy, filed a Motion to Dismiss all of the charges arguing that all of the charges on the criminal complaint were “facially insufficient.” This meant that the none of the facts alleged by the client's wife and son established prima facie evidence that any crime was committed. As a result of the Judge's decision dismissing the entire case, Client is no longer subject to any criminal charges and the order of protection is no longer valid.
