Outcome: Found Guilty at Trial and Sentenced to Nine Years
Charges: Corporal Injury (three counts), Assault with Great Bodily Injury, Violate Court Order to Prevent Domestic Violence, Dissuade Witness, Terrorist Threats (two counts), False ID to Peace Officer
Summary: This case stands for several principles:
- We don’t win EVERY time
- A defendant whose admissions and/or crimes are recorded should seriously consider avoiding trial
- When a case is going badly, a defendant will make it worse by picking up additional charges
- If a defendant talks about his case on a recorded line, it will be used against him.
