On March 31, 2010 charges were dismissed against my client for false allegations of domestic violence. His partner, who had previously served a lengthy six-month term in jail for attacking him and violating the terms of probation, made false allegations that 1) the police bought and 2) the district attorney charged, despite the total absence of witnesses and the injuries that both parties sustained. The alleged victim not only recanted, she wrote a letter to the judge and district attorney admitting she had fabricated the allegations. Their response? Nothing. I was forced to prepare for trial.
