Our client was accused of pointing a gun at the victim stating “i’m gonna blow your brains out.” We discovered the victim had identified the gun and the State was about to file charges. We intervened and showed the State that the victim had been making unwanted sexual advances toward our client’s girlfriend. We admitted our client owned the gun but had never pointed it or used it against the victim. We also proved the victim was making arrangements to leave the State. We had the girlfriend confirm our version of events in writing. We convinced the State not to file formal charges by getting involved early on and doing the work up front. The State dropped all charges.
