Minnesota Domestic Assault Case Results

minneapolis st. paul domestic assault lawyersTo see just how successful our approach is, here are some representative domestic assault case results:

State v. C.S.

March 2017

Charges: Misdemeanor domestic assault

Resolution: Stay of Adjudication result out of Hennepin County. Tough facts, including damning photographic evidence, became less important than a thoroughgoing approach to counseling and reconciliation between the parties, and a thoughtful prosecutor. Remember, a victim doesn’t control the charging decision any longer, if they ever truly did; even more important, the State retains full authority to take a case forward, including to trial. It takes a careful, highly experienced hand to manage a complex assault matter, even with a recanting or reluctant complaining witness/’victim,’ so do NOT assume a case will be dismissed without extreme care and planning, and a lawyer from North Star.

State v. S.N.

February 2017

Charges: Domestic assault and disorderly conduct

Resolution: Stay of adjudication to the disorderly conduct, with an agreement to expunge the record when eligible. With the client in the midst of a divorce with the alleged victim, obtaining a non-conviction result was critical. Even after obtaining this great result, Mr. Gempeler argued successfully against probation’s recommendations for domestic abuse programming. Instead, the judge credited the client for having completed anger management and did not impose any additional terms of probation. The client is set up to succeed and get back on her feet.

State v. T.T.

June 2016

Charges: Misdemeanor Domestic Assaults – two charges

Resolution: Case dismissed on the first day of trial. The State requested a late continuance, which was successfully opposed by Mr. Gempeler. Preparation was key, for not only being trial ready, but also to be able to make the correct arguments opposing an often granted continuance request. Due to the denial, the State could not proceed at trial and the case was dismissed. Mr. Gempeler also wisely laid a record to assist in defeating a potential re-filing of the charges due to bad faith by the State. This was a critical result for a client facing possible deportation with any conviction stemming from these allegations.

State v. J.A.

May 2016

Charges: Misdemeanor Domestic Assault

Resolution: Stay of adjudication to a city ordinance violation of disorderly conduct. Client faced his second domestic assault charge in a two-year span involving the same complaining witness. Mr. Gempeler leveraged a possible self-defense claim and information he learned through the complaining witness to obtain this incredible outcome. The client is thrilled to be able to walk away without a criminal record after these two serious allegations were levied against him.

State v. C.S.

January 2016

Charges: Domestic Assault

Resolution: Continuance for Dismissal. This remarkable result was obtained even in spite of the fact that the Defendant had a history of felonious behavior with the complaining witness. Yet, after strenuous litigation over the admissibility of a putative confession, and repeated demands for a guilty plea or formal trial, the Court granted Mr. Adkins’ request for a continuance for dismissal, with no findings of fact, and a turnaround of six months–not the typical two years. Client is thrilled; he gets to keep his Second Amendment rights intact, which were of paramount concern to him.
