Assault and Battery
Assault and Battery - Not Guilty
When a young wife is charged with a crime and is completely innocent of that crime, it is very troubling. Attorney Jordan’s client found herself in such a position after she and her husband went to drop off his son to his ex-girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend accused Attorney Jordan’s client of throwing snowballs at her.
The young wife faced 93 days in jail and/or a fine up to $500, as well as, up to two years’ probation, plus restitution. At trial, Attorney Jordan used his trial skills to show the jurors the truth. Through cross examination of the complainant he exposed her as a bitter ex-girlfriend who was angry that her ex boyfriend had gotten married and was intent on making his new wife miserable. She made the whole story up. Attorney Jordan also cross examined a so called “eyewitness” and exposed her as a friend who came to court to lie for her friend.
Although Attorney Jordan's client, was not facing the same consequences as one of his clients charged with a more serious assaultive crime - like murder - he nevertheless advocated with the same sense of zeal and passion that he does for all his clients. The verdict? NOT GUILTY.
