There is nothing besides the calling part involved in this case. There is another case, where the ex wife is suing fir money, but that is totally a different story. The case I'm inquiring about, only involves a so called phone call, which never took place. My questions is, did the attorney make the right choice by choosing to go to trial (Grand Jury)? Couldn't the case have been dismissed for lack of evidence?
The case is as simple as the girl made a call to the cops claiming that my father called and harrased her. They arrested him. They released him. He appeared at court a few times, but the court was always adjourned. Today, the attorney asked him if he wanted to plead guilty to the charges. My father said no. The attorney spoke with the prosecutor in private, came back, and said were going to trial.
