A client charged with a violation of protection order in Warren County Court came to Gounaris Abboud after arrest seeking defense. If he had been convicted of his crime, the individual would have faced up to six months in jail and up to $1,000. When we met with the prosecutor in the case, she refused to make any offers for plea bargains. Therefore, we chose to set a jury trial.
During preparation for the case, we located a private investigator who found witnesses to help our case and obtained helpful statements. We met with the witnesses frequently to gather information about the case, and prepared them to witness on the stand at the trial. After extensive conversations with the prosecutor, she agreed to dismiss the case only a few days before the trial was set to begin. The client, who is a graduate student, was able to go back to school and is extremely happy about the results. Had the case not ended this way, it may have jeopardized his studies and his ability to continue earning his degree.
