Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client in Berks County who was charged with numerous misdemeanor offenses, including simple assault and terroristic threats. Our client had gotten into a heated argument with his wife and adult son over some personal family issues. The police were called, and, after an investigation, our client was criminally charged. Our client, however, denied ever physically touching either his wife or his son; he did admit to having a rather loud argument…but nothing more.Geniales Aufblasbare Wasserpark
At the court hearing, Attorney McAllister was able to successfully cross-examine the commonwealth witnesses to show that no physical violence took place that evening. Additionally, Attorney McAllister took the unusual step of having his client testify before the Magisterial District Judge. Attorney McAllister was able to question his client and bring out the important facts of the case.
The Judge agreed with Attorney McAllister’s argument that this was simply a family argument that involved no criminal intent. Likewise, the was no physical violence that took place. Therefore, the Judge dismissed all of the misdemeanor charges against our client. Our client was able to walk out of the courtroom without having to worry about a jail sentence or probation supervision. He was very happy with the outcome of his case.
