Protective order dismissal.

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Attorney David Wooten recently convinced two different Montgomery County Circuit Court judges to dismiss two protective orders filed by the client’s estranged wife over the course of four months.  Attorney Wooten’s client had pled guilty to Second Degree Assault against his wife in 2012.  In the first 2013 protective order, the wife alleged that her husband attempted to crash into her with his car.  In the second protective order, she alleged that he sent threatening text messages which suggested her life was in danger.  Both protective orders were denied, after attorney Wooten argued that the wife is abusing Maryland’s protective order statute in attempt to gain a strategic advantage in their collateral divorce and custody battle, as well as to violate the client’s probation which would have put him in jail and caused him to lose his Maryland State inspector’s license.
