Felony Domestic Violence Charge Dismissed
TILDEN LAW was contacted by a client recently who was facing a charge of Felony Domestic Violence Battery by Strangulation and Witness Tampering in Seminole County, Florida. According to the police affidavit, our client was involved in an argument with his wife relating to a variety of domestic issues. As the argument escalated, the report indicated that our client grabbed his wife by the throat with his hands and attempted to strangle her until she almost lost consciousness. The report further indicated that the alleged victim attempted to use her cell phone to call 911 but it was taken from her by our client in an attempt to prevent her from calling police.
Our office became involved shortly after our client was arrested and while he was being held in jail without bond. Attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden, immediately filed a motion for bond with the court. During the hearing, the court granted our motion as well as our further request that our client be released without special condition of no victim contact and no return to the shared residence. As the case progressed, Mr. Tilden was able to negotiate a resolution where the State Attorney dismissed the both Felony charges. Our client ultimately resolved his case with a non-conviction to a misdemeanor charge.
