My client was charged with striking his elderly mother in the face and pushing her to the ground. Because his mother was over 60 years of age, the State of Illinois charged him as a felony. The police took pictures of the victim showing injury to her face and they took a written statement as well. When my client was arrested, he gave a statement as well. This case went to trial because my client did not want anything on his record. We conducted the trial and showed the judge that the victim had changed her story numerous times and was not reliable. The judge did not believe that the State of Illinois proved him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We won the trial!Result: Not Guilty
