Our client was arrested for felony assault family violence-choking by the Dallas police department. An emergency protective order was issued against client and a video of the incident was given to the police. The case was indicted as a misdemeanor assault bodily injury-family member. After rejecting all plea offers, attorney Matt Peacock took the case to trial and got a NOT GUILTY. At trial, the DA’s admitted the video and pictures of bruises into evidence, and called 5 witness to testify against our client. The Judge denied any self-defense and necessity instructions to the jury. Even so, the jury found our client NOT GUILTY.
Client is active in many non-profit organizations working with children and hospitals. Client had to have a clean record in order to continue working with all the non-profits. Because of the work of Matt Peacock and the Medlin Law Firm did, our client was able to be acquitted and get an expunction and clear his record of this charge!
