Case Update - Client Acquitted at Trial

John Pettinella represented a person accused of 3rd Degree Assault and Harassment following an altercation with an off duty law enforcement officer.  The client's contention was that the dispute was initiated by the complaining witness.  Throughout the course of the matter, the District Attorney's Office refused to offer any plea agreement that would result in non-criminal charges.  The matter went to trial and in June, 2017, the client was acquitted of all charges.
