CLIENT WAS CHARGED WITH: Battery Involving Offensive Touching.

Client recently moved to the United States from a European country. He had a great job and was married. He and his wife learned that they were expecting their first child. Client and his good friend went out to celebrate. The client was extremely intoxicated and when he was leaving the bar, it is alleged that he grabbed a young woman’s buttocks without her consent. He was immediately arrested when the young lady called the police who happened to be outside the bar. The client was intoxicated to the point where he could not recall what happened that evening. It was critical to get the case dismissed because he was in the US on a work visa and could have no criminal record. Mr. Weisberg spoke at length with the prosecutor. Mr. Weisberg convinced the prosecutor that this case could destroy the client’s life. On the next court date, the prosecutor agreed to drop the case. Mr. Weisberg has since filed an expungement for the client.
