Battery on a Police Officer
(Penal Code Section 243(b))
Orange County Criminal Attorney
I was charged with a felony violation of Penal Code Section 69, Resisting and Deterring an Executive Officer, and Misdemeanor Battery on a Police Officer in violation of Penal Code Section 243(b).
My jail exposure was up to 3 years in prison for this offense. I was also on probation for a misdemeanor drunk driving offense. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me.
Despite the charges and my being on misdemeanor probation I have a good record of employment with an advanced degree in a prestigious profession. I also have a family. [Mr. Bruzzo argued these points with the District Attorney.]
Even with the representations of Police Officers and private security personnel with whom I had an altercation Mr. Bruzzo negotiated a complete DISMISSAL OF ALL THE CHARGES after I attended anger management classes.
I am very happy with this result as it keeps my record clean and keeps me out of custody. I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any violation of Penal Code Section 69, Resisting and Deterring an Executive Officer and Battery on a Police Officer, Penal Code Section 243(b).
I was charged with Penal Code Section 243(b) [Assault on a peace officer] and Penal Code Section 148(a) (1) [Resisting Arrest] for an altercation I got into with police. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me in this matter because of his familiarity with the courts, the judges and the prosecutor. The initial offer was that I plead guilty to the offenses and serve time in jail. However, Mr. Bruzzo continued to negotiate and in the end he got the charges DISMISSED once I pled to a Penal Code Section 415(1), [Disturbing the Peace]. The Agreement also permits me to withdraw the [plea] and dismiss it entirely in 1 year. As such I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any criminal matter.
I was charged with Assault on a Peace Officer (Penal Code Section 241(b)); Battery on an Officer (Penal Code Section 243(b)) and Resisting Arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a) (1)). These charges occurred as a result of an altercation I got into with a Police Officer in Orange County. I was looking at up to one year in jail for these offenses. I hired William W. Bruzzo to represent me because of his reputation and his familiarity with the courts in Orange County. I told Mr. Bruzzo that not only did I not assault the officer in question but that he assaulted me without reason or provocation. I realized that for the most part it would be my word against the officer’s. Mr. Bruzzo took my case and began investigating the officer by filing motions which requested the personnel records of the officer in question. The County of Orange fought to keep the records from being revealed but Mr. Bruzzo won in the end. The personnel records of the officer in question revealed that he had had problems with violence in the past. Mr. Bruzzo used this information in his negotiations with the District Attorney. In the end, the District Attorney agreed to DISMISS all the charges against me! I am very grateful to Mr. Bruzzo for his work and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any criminal matter.
