M.V. was a single mother of two. Her ex-husband had a new girlfriend and the relationship with this woman was strained to say the least. The history had gotten to be such that an incident took place when the two got into an argument in a local retail store. During said argument it was alleged that M. assaulted the woman with a weapon. M.V. had no criminal record and ensuring no conviction was the priority. After dealing with a senior prosecutor a resolution was reached in which the client’s charges were withdrawn following a written apology.
