Domestic Assault Case Results

To see just how successful our approach is, here are some representative DWI case results:

State v. J.H.

October, 2019
Charges: Domestic Assault - Misdemeanor

Case Dismissed. The North Star team raised a self-defense claim and utilized the mental health treatment the client was undergoing to negotiate the client to a great offer leading up to trial. Yet, it wasn't good enough and the defense knew that the complaining witness was not responsive to the State. With a trial date set, the State knew it had to dismiss the case due to both the self-defense claim and the complaining witness's absence. A much deserved and needed victory for the client.

State v. K.M.

September, 2019
Charges: 5 Misdemeanor Counts of Domestic Assault, Assault, and Disorderly Conduct

Stay of Adjudication to the bottom count of disorderly conduct. On top of that, the probationary term is only 6-months, compared to a year, and the client is on unsupervised probation. The end result is the client will not a conviction, despite the five charges. For a young man planning to pursue a masters program, getting this outcome was critical.

State v. M.K.

May, 2019
Charges: Felony Domestic Assault - Strangulation; Two counts of misdemeanor domestic assault

Stay of Adjudication to a misdemeanor domestic assault and the remaining counts are dismissed. On top of earning the opportunity to keep his clean record, the terms of probation are basically non-existent - pay a small fine and remain law abiding. Because of this outcome, the client has no job consequence and can maintain and continue to build his relationship with his son, who was caught up in the incident - allegedly. Notably, this case was in a county that Mr. Gempeler had yet to appear in. Yet, he was quickly able to earn the respect and trust of the County Attorney and negotiate this incredible result, showing that our approach translates to success across the State, regardless of our prior history in any one county.

State v. C.T.

April, 2019
Charges: Interference with 911 Call - Gross Misdemeanor; two Domestic Assaults - Misdemeanors

Stay of Adjudication to a single misdemeanor domestic assault. The terms of probation are minimal - no use of non-prescribed drugs or alcohol and testing upon demand. That's it. No jail. No community service. No domestic abuse programming. A small fine. For a hard-working father of several girls that were all supportive of him, obtaining this outcome was important for the family to continue its healing process and move forward from this off night.

State v. N.M.

April, 2019
Charges: Misdemeanor Domestic Assault

Continuance for dismissal to an amended count of disorderly conduct. The client had no criminal record, but had engaged in rather poor behavior overall (though the assaultive behavior was not severe) due to a multi-day alcohol binge. The client was extremely proactive in addressing his underlying alcohol and mental health issues. With this, the North Star team leveraged their good relationship with the prosecutor and obtained this incredible outcome for a needful client.

State v. S.O.

April, 2019
Charges: Domestic Assault and various other charges

Dismissed. The client was charged with a first-time domestic involving his wife. Their decades long relationship was leading to a divorce, with this incident serving as the rock bottom point. But, the response by the family was remarkable. Proactive steps, including weekly meetings with their pastor and completing an anger management course, allowed the family to heal and rebuild their relationship. And despite living in the country for a long time, the client was just in the process of finishing his application for citizenship. The fear was that anything other than an outright dismissal could negatively impact his application, including the possibility of deportation. Understanding this, Mr. Gempeler and the North Star team developed a strategy that positioned the client for this dismissal -—via negotiations. There was no defense. This outcome was obtained through both the strong and trust relationship with the prosecutor, and an understanding of how to best approach the negotiations to get such an incredible and atypical result.

State v. K.F.

March, 2019
Charges: Pre-Charge - Possible Felony Assault and Domestic Assault

County Attorney's office DECLINED TO CHARGE the client and even went so far as instructed the investigator to immediately release the client from custody. Within hours of being retained, the North Star team gathered sufficient information from the family to relay to the County Attorney who was in the middle of reviewing the file for charging. With this additional information, the choice was clear - this client needed to be released without charges immediately and returned to her family. The family was overjoyed at this news and emphasized they were right to choose our team over other firms they were considering. Another case where the North Star team's immediate hustle and tenacity leads to another incredible result.

State v. N.M.

March, 2019
Charges: Two Cases - One misdemeanor domestic assault and another misdemeanor DANCO violation

Plea to a tab charge of disorderly conduct and stay of adjudication on a domestic assault charge. The DANCO case was dismissed entirely. And no DANCO was issued during the pendency of the client's probation. This last part was absolutely critical because the client is a military member and the presence of a DANCO would result in the loss of his firearm rights and being out of the Army. And this plea agreement provided him a chance to avoid a domestic conviction, which again would have jeopardized his military career. Most cases where a DANCO violation is added to a domestic charge result in at least one conviction to a domestic type charge. The North Star team avoided this and saved this client's future with the Army.

State v. N.N.

September, 2018
Charges: Domestic Assault - Strangulation - Probation Violation

Client released, returned to probation. This seemingly endless matter, involving a high-profile assault, an intervening DUI, multiple failed urinalysis tests, and other alleged acts violating probation could have meant a trip to prison for this troubled but engaging client, if not for Mr. Adkins' intervention and creativity. It is never not time for North Star to assist, and both James and Dan are regarded statewide as experts in solving these types of problems. We utilize state of the art therapeutic evaluators and providers, and cutting edge technology for these purposes, and our success rate is unmatched. We are soup-to-nuts problem-solvers, and this particular client is out of custody and working a plan to stay that way.

State v. B.K.

August, 2018
Charges: Domestic Assault - Misdemeanor

Continuance for Dismissal. For a minimal cost, the client will earn the right to keep her record clean. While the North Star team built up a self-defense claim, it was still able to negotiate the guaranteed outcome that was most critical - a dismissal. On top of that, the City agreed to expunge the record immediately upon satisfaction of the terms of the deal. A truly great outcome.
