Another Win by Tyler Beach

Tyler was defending Assault IV - classified as domestic violence.  This charge carries up to 1 year of jail and a fine of up to $6,250.00.  The crucial issue Tyler prepared was 'lack of injury'.  To be guilty of Assault IV, a person must have caused a 'physical injury' to another.  Typically, this is defined as causing an 'impairment of a physical condition' or 'substantial pain.'  By the use of aggressive cross examination of the alleged victim and the three police officers, Tyler soundly defeated this issue.  Through the use of a 'motion for a judgment of acquittal,' Tyler convinced the judge that the issue was so throughly defeated that it should not even be considered by the jury.  Accordingly, the judge issued a judgment of Not Guilty.
