Our Chicago criminal defense law firm handled a case in which a jealous ex-girlfriend rammed her car into her ex-boyfriend's car as he drove with his new girlfriend and her child. As a result of the impact, the car rolled over and was heavily damaged. The man and his girlfriend attempted to file a criminal complaint, but the ex-girlfriend avoided arrest by fleeing and filed her own complaint at another police station, claiming that she was the victim of a battery on a different day.
The police decided to charge the man and would not accept a complaint against the woman. Fortunately, criminal defense attorney Steven R. Hunter was able to prove that the jealous ex had sent numerous emails to the defendant professing her love after the alleged battery, had attacked the defendant, and then went to the police to avoid arrest herself. However, the defendant was forced to defend himself in court despite being the victim.
