After observing an argument between his mother and her boyfriend, our client made the unfortunate decision to intervene with a walking staff that was situated in the home. During the altercation, he struck the man dozens of times which resulted in significant injuries to the boyfriend and resulted in hospitalization. J.B. was subsequently charged with assault with a weapon and faced certain jail time if convicted. After hiring our office, a plan was formulated in which the client completed comprehensive anger management counselling. After doing so, Mr. Wyman solicited the help of a senior prosecutor who ultimately agreed to withdraw the charges.
