Battery on Law Enforcement Officer – Acquitted by Jury


State v. D.A.; Case No. 562001CF003933 (St. Lucie County)


Violent and Gun Crimes

Arresting Agency

Fort Pierce Police Department


Acquitted by Jury

Our client was attending a big outdoor party. A fight broke out and our client turned to run away from the situation and inadvertently runs over a small female Fort Pierce police officer. The officer mistakenly believes that it was intentional, even though our client tries to help her up. An investigation is conducted by the defense, witnesses are found, depositions are taken and then we announced ready for trial.  After hearing our arguments, the jury elected to acquit our client.
