How an Experienced Camden County Strangulation Assault Attorney from The Law Offices of Michele Finizio Can Defend Against Strangulation Assault Charges 

The team at the Law Offices of Michele Finizio has extensive experience defending the rights of those that are charged with strangulation assault charges. The number of cases of people falsely accusing others of assault is increasing. We believe that everyone charged with strangulation assault deserves a fair trial. We apply a wide range of strategies to defend the rights of those we represent, including: 

Attacking the allegations 

There are several cases that can’t be substantiated because of a lack of evidence. We attack the allegations against our clients and poke holes in the prosecution’s case. 

Raise issues on credibility 

Many strangulation assault cases are based on the word of the victim. We scrutinize the credibility of the complaint made by the alleged victim and point out any inaccuracies and inconsistencies in their stories. 

Counterbalance the motivation of the victim 

It isn’t uncommon for alleged victims to make a complaint with the wrong motivation. For example, alleged victims may file a complaint in order to get full custody of their children or as payback. We will seek to find out more about the alleged victim’s motivation. 

Apply for Pretrial intervention 

While it is generally difficult to obtain, we will seek consent from the prosecutor for pretrial intervention and help you avoid the severe consequences of a conviction for strangulation assault.

Frequently Asked Questions about Strangulation in Camden County, NJ

Why was I served with a restraining order after being charged with strangulation assault? 

Individuals who are facing strangulation assault charges often have restraining orders taken against them. The court may issue a temporary restraining order to protect the alleged victim from further acts of violence. You will have a limited time within which you can fight the issuing of a final restraining order against you. It is therefore important to seek the guidance and representation of an experienced Camden County strangulation assault attorney. Your attorney will not only help you fight the strangulation assault charges but also the issuing of a final restraining order. 

Are there opportunities for pretrial intervention when charged with strangulation assault? 

Strangulation assault was elevated to a second-degree crime in 2021. This means that it is incredibly difficult to secure pretrial intervention for anyone charged with this crime. This is because second-degree crimes are ineligible for diversions that can be made through pretrial intervention. Domestic violence cases are also excluded from relief through pretrial intervention. 

However, it is possible to secure a pretrial intervention. With the help of a skilled strangulation defense lawyer in Camden County, NJ from the Law Offices of Michele Finizio, you can apply to the prosecutor for pretrial intervention. Contact our law firm now to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how we can help.
