Domestic violence charges dismissed after attorney discovers identical accusations

A man was charged with battery family violence after a woman accused him of hitting her. After the prosecutor refused to back down, Mr. Cabe was hired on the case. Fortunately, Mr. Cabe was able to present evidence from a related civil hearing in which a judge concluded that the woman made identical allegations against another man on that same day. In fact, it was eventually revealed that the women went to the hospital that day and complained it was another boyfriend who hit her. After bringing this inconsistent evidence to light, the case was dismissed.
