Assault Fourth Degree – “Not Guilty”

Great Result – Client Acquitted at Jury Trial on Assault Fourth Degree Allegation”

Recently Ashbach Law Offices, LLC secured a “Not Guilty” verdict at jury trial for a client charged with Assault Fourth Degree, with a ‘sexual motivation’ enhancement.  This jury trial took place in Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division, located in Monroe, Washington.

Our office worked on this Assault Fourth Degree case for over a year, during which time the prosecutor’s office showed absolutely zero flexibility and willingness to negotiate the case.  In fact, the prosecutor’s office added the ‘sexual motivation’ enhancement on the morning of trial, 14 months after the case was filed.  Despite the entire incident being captured on video, the six-person jury only took 45 minutes to return a verdict of “not guilty” in our case.  Our client was facing certain job termination if any assault conviction occurred, so the stakes were high. As we do for all clients we represent, we fought tooth and nail to make sure this client’s career, freedom and reputation remained intact.
