State v. S.S., October, 2018
Charges: 5th Degree Assault - Misdemeanor
Resolution: DISMISSED. Client was facing charges stemming from a fight in which he was wrongfully identified as the perpetrator. Instead, he was the peacemaker in a fight involving multiple individuals. Thankfully, Mr. Gempeler and the team at North Star diligently reviewed the witness statements and discovered that the State had charged the wrong individual based on the description of the perpetrators. With a photo of the client from the night in question, Mr. Gempeler easily persuaded the State to dismiss the case without even needing to file a formal motion.
