Went to stand-your-ground hearing
Went to stand-your-ground hearing. ASA had not read the motoin or ever looked at the evidence; he saw the video and read the motion and facebook post... I spoke with him, he nol prosequi the case rather than proceed. Kyle Trowdowski was present virtually, but Lori West (critical witness) was NOT. Happy to have the win, though. Client very happy.

Prevailed at hearing
Prevailed at hearing; the petitioner (Johnny Walker) dropped the case because there was no need for an injunction with all of Tammy Walker's stuff out of the house. Client Tammy Walker is still angry that Johnny Walker choked her (NF case number with the State in Osceola, dropped because letters to Tammy Walker went to Johnny Walker's house and she didn't know about it, State probably found "no contact" and dropped).

State finally evaluated the case from a trial standpoint
State finally evaluated the case from a trial standpoint (case was set for trial in a few days) and State finally realized that they couldn't prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Case dismissed.
Case dismissed. (Nol pros). Alleged victim who'd claimed she'd stolen "his" car and broke into "his" house to get the keys finally admitted to the State that she always drove the car and that it was her car, regardless of who had title.

When the case proceeded forward,...
