Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon Charges DismissedPublished: Jan 12, 2022 by Erika Valcarcel
When a client was facing third-degree felony charges for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, they quickly contacted Erika Valcarcel to avoid a potential punishment of 5 years in jail.
The client was accused of threatening her husband of many years with a kitchen knife; however, these alleged facts were not accurately reported.
The husband contacted our office and signed a waiver of prosecution stating that he did not want to go forward with the case. We then submitted a waiver to the State Attorney’s office arguing that without the alleged victim’s testimony, there was no evidence of a crime. This resulted in a full dismissal of the client’s charges.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
