Texas v. C.M. – Assault Causing Bodily Injury (March 2024)

Client was charged with assault causing bodily injury after an altercation at a middle school meet-the-teacher night ended with Client’s wife’s ex-husband getting punched in the face. The initial responding police officers believed our client struck the complainant in self-defense. A detective later overturned that finding and charged Client instead. Defense investigation revealed the complainant had a history of serially lying, filing frivolous court documents, and sending thinly veiled threats to our client through the wife and child. Case was dismissed two weeks before it was set to begin trial.
