State drops all charges- Assault Second Degree

In a less serious, but equally important case, I recently represented a client in the District Court for Cecil County, facing accusations of Assault in the Second Degree(CR 3-203) as well as Disorderly Conduct(CR 10-201(c)(2)). These were serious charges, facing the potential maximum sentence of 10 years in jail  and/or a $2,500 fine for the Second Degree Assault, and 60 days in jail  and/or a $500 fine for the Disorderly Conduct. Through ongoing discussions with the State’s Attorney’s office here, issues presented with the veracity and credibility of the alleged victim and witnesses against my client ultimately allowed me to convince the state to drop all charges against my client.

 

There was no known media coverage of this case.
