Case Results - State vs. FC

Result: Case Dismissed prior to trial

FC was arrested and accused of battering his wife out of anger that she failed to take their son to baseball practice. It was alleged that FC smacked his wife with an open hand once and hit her with a closed fist once. Jason Mayberry was retained on the case and pursuant to his investigation, found no evidence in the police report of bodily injury to the victim, evidence of an altercation at the scene, independent witnesses, or photographs supporting the allegation. Based on his findings, Mayberry advised FC to refuse an offer of pretrial diversion and take his case to trial. After announcing ready for trial at a pretrial conference, the State Attorney’s Office dismissed the case against FC.
