Woman shot husband in face-dismissed

A middle Georgia woman can move forward after her aggravated assault charge was finally dismissed. In the case, the woman suffered years of family violence. This resulted in a tumultuous divorce with children involved. On the evening in question, the ex-husband came to the women’s house and beat her again. Fortunately, the woman was able to defend herself by shooting the man in the face. She was arrested and formerly charged. After obtaining additional evidence, and negotiating with the prosecutor, Mr. Cabe was able to achieve a full dismissal of all charges since the woman was acting in self-defense.
