New Jersey man claims he was a victim of violent crime

A domestic dispute resulted in injuries for one man. The New Jersey resident was burned when his girlfriend allegedly threw boiling water onto his face and back. Despite being the alleged victim of a violent crime, the man himself was charged with domestic violence and held in jail. 

The man says that at the time of the crime, he was attacked by his girlfriend and was doused in the boiling water. He recounts that she was able to reach the phone first to dial 911. When officers arrived, she claimed that he choked her around the neck and beat her in the face with a boot. Officers charged both individuals with assault, but only the man was arrested and held in jail. 

No record exists for the arrest and prosecution of the girlfriend, although the man was able to win a restraining order against her. The case against the man was later dropped, and it was said that the judge did not find the girlfriend's testimony to be credible. The man feels that he suffered unfair treatment due to his arrest, because of his gender, despite the fact that he had visible and serious injuries due to the violent incident. 

He has currently brought a civil case against the local New Jersey police department for discrimination. The charges for the violent crime were unfairly applied in his case, he argues. A person who has been the victim of a crime but who has been charged with one in error, may want to look for help to defend and seek dismissal of the case. A criminal defense lawyer can help an individual sort out the true events and build a strong defense against unfair charges.
