I'm in the Gwinnett County State Court defending my client against a charge of family violence.
In the State of Georgia, the definition of family violence has been extended to include, spouses, brothers and sisters, boyfriends, girlfriends, and roommates who occupy the same residence.
The penalties for family violence is more severe than the penalties for simple battery.
In this particular Instance my client has a history which complicates any negotiation.
I'm happy to report that I was able to get the prosecutor and the court to agree to reduce the charge to simple battery.
This is an excellent outcome for my client.
