Client was charged with felony assault. Sunshine jumped in immediately upon learning that client was still in custody.
Sunshine went to the jail and sat down with the client to get to the bottom of what had happened. As if often the case, the story was quite different from our client versus what the alleged victim had told the police. Sunshine got to work immediately, investigating, talking to witnesses, interviewing the alleged victim, and looking for evidence that may have been missed. Sunshine found witnesses who had not been interviewed by the police.
Sunshine took this new evidence and the alleged victims ever changing story to the prosecutor who quickly realized the weakness of his case and offered to let our client plead to misdemeanor disturbing the peace.
