Aggravated Battery and Armed Burglary with Battery
Client was with his girlfriend at the front door of one of her male friends. When the friend came to the door, he began flirting with the clients girlfriend which resulted in a fight that caused a glass door to break. The fight continued inside the residence and due to breakage of glass, the resident was seriously injured. Client was charged with burglary with a battery, a life felony, which carried no bond and a maximum penalty of life in Florida State prison. Mr Schwartz immediately upon being retained gathered witnesses and produced affidavits, which contradicted the statement of the alleged victim. A background check on the victim was done on the victim and revealed him to be an extensive drug user with mental stability issues which to some extent tarnished his credibility. As a result, Mr. Schwartz was able to work out a resolution with the alleged victim and the State Attorneys Office which led to the case being dismissed and ensuring that the clients criminal history remained clean.
