Domestic Battery Dismissed

Chicago Criminal Attorneys - The prosecutor dismissed Domestic Battery charges at the Rolling Meadows Courthouse in Cook County against my client on the eve of trial after I came to court ready for trial with my witnesses and my evidence. My client was charged with committing a Domestic Battery against her sister. My client was 4 months pregnant at the time. She had gotten into a verbal argument with her sister and had gone to court to attempt to obtain an Order of Protection against her sister. When she arrived at court she was arrested and charged with Domestic Battery. My client currently has a Pardon Petition pending before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board to try to obtain a pardon from the Governor for a criminal conviction that had occurred many years ago. A conviction for a Domestic Battery would have ruined her chances of obtaining a pardon.
