A Dougherty county case involving Battery was dismissed after the alleged victim refused to testify

The Defendant and his girlfriend got into an argument which became physical. She called the police and said he attacked her. When the police arrived they decided to believe her, even though both said the other was the aggressor. Our investigation revealed that the evidence was more supportive of the Defendant’s version than her version and prepared the case for trial. The victim decided she did not want to be crossed examined by us on the stand and refused to cooperate further with the state. Without any witness willing to testify against the Defendant, the state dismissed the case.
