Not Guilty – Simple Assault – Commonwealth v. J.S.
The Commonwealth charged J.S. with Simple Assault and related charges. Through a thorough investigation of the case, Ms. Shaw was able to uncover evidence that the Commonwealth initially withheld. During the trial, Ms. Shaw was able to repeatedly show the court all the lies that the complainant told to police, detectives, and the Judge.
Ms. Shaw masterfully confronted the complaining witness with inaccuracy of dates and exaggeration of injuries, thereby exposing her motive to lie to obtain custody of their shared child. Her aggressive advocacy demonstrated that J.S. was actually a victim of domestic violence the whole time. He was subsequently found not guilty of all charges.
