Aggravated Battery In Fort Walton Beach Dismissed

AD was in a lot of trouble when he came to meet with me about his case in Fort Walton Beach. He was charged with Aggravated Battery on a Pregnant Victim and Domestic Battery by Strangulation. He was looking at a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, with a mandatory minimum sentence of 34 months in prison.

One possible defense with battery cases involving pregnant victims is that the State must prove that the offender knew the victim was pregnant. In this case however, the victim was AD’s wife and she was 8 months pregnant so we knew that wouldn’t be a valid defense.

Before coming in to meet with me, he had talked to public defender and they told him that the best they could do for him was to accept the 34 month prison sentence.

With a baby on the way and a family that needed him at home and working, AD put his trust in me. I immediately told him to enroll himself in anger management classes along with alcohol counseling. I also met with the prosecutor to let them know that this family intended to stay together and work through their problems. I told the prosecutor that pleading guilty and going to prison was not an option for AD and that if the case wasn’t dismissed, we’d be setting it for trial.

About a week later, the State dismissed all charges against my client. He was able to reunite with his family and he promised to continue with the counseling that he needed.
