Not guilty verdict from jury trial aggravated battery on pregnant woman
State v. D.W.; Case No. 562001CF000588 (Saint Lucie County)
Arresting Agency: State v. D.W.; Case No. 562001CF000588 (Saint Lucie County)
Case Summary: The state put a very reluctant alleged victim on the stand to try and force her to testify about this incident that she had previously phoned in to the police. She ended up recanting her testimony and completely frustrating the prosecutor to his wits end. Still, the state persisted with its case and argued that she was only trying to protect her baby daddy. The Defense argued that she overreacted in calling the police on the night of there argument and that our client only acted in self-defense.
