Our office recently had a major dismissal in a Washington County Measure 11 case. The District Attorney dismissed all charges, including Kidnapping, Assault in the Second Degree, Strangulation, Coercion and multiple counts of Assault. The firm uncovered and was able to prove major inconsistencies in the victim's story. We worked with a total of four experts to dismantle the victim's version of events. This huge victory for our client spared him from over 13 years in prison, and he walked free from the courthouse.
This case was set for trial in four days, and the state dismissed, despite having attempted to take this case to trial. The District Attorney's office had planned to call an expert in strangulation, a forensic medical examiner from Coos County, to prove the strangulation constituted Assault in the Second Degree. Cases like these take a team of experts and investigators, in addition to the legal work, and this case got a great result for our client. I couldn't be more proud of the team at Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC.
