Client Found Not Guilty After Trial – Six Counts of Domestic Violence

My client was the son of a former South American Ambassador to the United Nations.  He was here on a work visa and applied for permanent resident status.  An ex-girlfriend filed charges initially accusing him of one count of assault.  She subsequently convinced the prosecution to add two additional counts against my client. A plea of guilty or a conviction would have resulted in his removal from the United States.  After an extensive investigation witnesses to the alleged assaults were located and agreed to testify.  Further investigation revealed that the complaining witness had “stalked” a prior boyfriend and had an arrest record for assault in another jurisdiction.  After a week long trial, the jury returned a Not Guilty verdict on all counts.
