Meyer wins domestic violence assault trial

Attorney Zeed Meyer’s client was recently acquitted of domestic violence assault in Clark County District Court.

Meyer said the jury deliberated approximately 90 minutes before returning a not-guilty verdict at the end of a daylong trial July 10.

At the time of the alleged assault, Meyer’s client was separated from his wife and mother of two daughters. His wife and children were staying with his parents, and he stopped by the residence to say goodnight to daughters. His youngest daughter said she wanted to go home with him, and so he took her home.

His wife, after agreeing to the arrangement, called him and they got into a fight about an unpaid bill. She told him she wished he was dead, and then drove to the family home. She called 911 and claimed that her estranged husband had struck her in the face at the front door. Officers who responded noted that one of her cheeks appeared red.

Client acquitted of assault, malicious mischief charges

Attorney Neil Anderson won a trial July 5 in Clark County District Court for a client charged with assault in the fourth degree and malicious mischief in the third degree.

The client was arrested April 10 after he tried to retrieve a cell phone that had belonged to his late brother, who had died approximately three weeks earlier. His brother had always allowed him to use the phone, he testified.

He told jurors he asked his late brother’s girlfriend for the phone and she refused to give it to him. The two were roommates at the time, and he went into her bedroom to get the phone. The alleged victim testified that he moved her out of the way to try and get into the bedroom. When she called 911 on April 10, she said she’d been thrown to the ground.

Anderson, Hawke get "third strike" dismissed

Attorneys Neil Anderson and Whitney Hawke succeeded this week in getting a client’s “third strike” assault case dismissed after spending months gathering evidence showing the alleged victim was not credible.

A Clark County deputy prosecuting attorney, finally conceding he had an unwinnable case, filed a motion to dismiss the charge of assault in the second degree. A Superior Court judge signed the dismissal order on May 10, and the client was released from the Clark County Jail.

He’d been in jail since his September arrest. Trial had been set for later this month.

Under the state’s 1993 persistent offender law, better known as the “three strikes” law, the client faced a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole had he been convicted. The law, which was approved by voters, locks away prisoners for life after a third conviction for a violent felony.

The client, 51, has two strikes for second-degree assault convictions in 1990 and 2002.
