Assault with a Dangerous Weapon
Client was a hardworking cleaner with three children. She had a boyfriend who had a hard time letting go of their relationship and accused her of waving a knife at him. The police performed a thorough investigation, which was helpful to client. A Clerk's Hearing was ordered and at the hearing Clerk declined to issue the complaint.
