DISPOSITION OF CHARGES:
When a Detroit man could no longer tolerate his girlfriend’s extreme jealousy and constant false cheating accusations, he told her he would be moving in two months. Two weeks later, the girlfriend told him her neck was hurting. He told her she should get some medical attention.
They went to a medical provider. He waited in the car. A short time later, a police car pulled into the space behind where he was parked. He thought nothing of it. Then the police got out of the car and arrested him. His girlfriend had reported to the medical staff that she had been assaulted by him.
At arraignment in District Court 17, the man’s girlfriend said she could not remember if he strangled her or not, but stated that he had told her he strangled her. The man’s court appointed attorney asked that the case be dismissed. The judge refused, and the defendant’s case was moved to 3rd Circuit Court.
After 12 months, and many court appearances, the defendant felt that while his court appointed attorney was a fine person, he needed to hire a private attorney. That private attorney was Carl Jordan, who argued that the case should be dismissed. On July 18, 2022, almost two years after the initial arrest, the case was dismissed.
