Man Facing Assault Charges for Choking His Girlfriend

On Saturday evening a woman got choked by her boyfriend because she wasn’t cooking his dinner fast enough. The twenty-seven year old man is now facing aggravated assault charges after choking his girlfriend.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office says that a physical altercation had taken place between the couple because of the girlfriend’s slow cooking.

The twenty-two year old female victim told the authorities that the twenty-seven year old, Dustin Eric Green had threatened to beat her with a rubber mallet. However he then started to choke her.

The Choking Girlfriend Fights Back

According to the police officials, the woman grabbed a knife and stabbed the man in the leg as a defense. However, the male then started to beat the young woman in the back of her head.

According to the Mohave police, they were called to respond to a home near the Thompson and Northern Avenues. This was around six o’clock in the evening. They found out that Dustin had two warrants for his violation of probation as well as failure to pay fines.

Dustin told the police officials that he was stabbed and then he was taken to a local hospital so that he could be treated. He was later released from the hospital and booked into the Mohave County Jail.


Man Gets Shot in Back for Talking to Another Man’s Ex-Girlfriend

Police have now found a thirty-five year old man that is suspected of shooting someone in the back on early Tuesday morning. Apparently the two gentleman had gotten into an argument over the suspect’s ex-girlfriend in West Phoenix.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, the suspect and a thirty-one year old man got into an argument near the 51st Avenue and McDowell Road around three o’clock in the morning. The argument started when the victim talked to the suspect’s ex-girlfriend. How crazy is that? People are getting absolutely crazy these days!

The police said that the suspect took out a gun and then the two gentlemen struggled. The gun then went off and hit the suspect on his backside. The suspect then shot the other gentleman in the back and fled the incident scene.

Victim Taken to Hospital for Wound from Suspect Shooting

The gunshot victim was taken to the local hospital for surgery and luckily he is expected to survive according to the Phoenix Police. The Officers came to the scene when they responded to reports of a shooting in the area and was able to track down the suspect to the area around Buckeye Road and the 17th Avenue, according to the police. He was then taken to the hospital for treatment of his gunshot wound as well. The suspect is expected to be booked into jail as soon as he is discharged.

So people should apparently be careful who you talk to these days. You never know who might have a crazy ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend. Seriously though, people, try to stay calm. If you’re jealous don’t shoot someone. Then you’ll end up being a suspect.

At the Phoenix based Offices of Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC, you will find the experienced, dedicated and highly skilled trial attorneys you need to protect your rights. Each of our attorneys made a conscious decision to become a criminal defense lawyer.

Hiring the Right Homicide Lawyer in Phoenix

Having a skilled homicide defense attorney is important in any criminal case, but it is even more critical in a murder case. To properly defend a client against a murder charge, a defense lawyer must be prepared to effectively challenge the prosecution’s evidence. To do so, a Phoenix Murder Defense Attorney must be prepared to effectively cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses, including any expert witnesses.


Expert Witnesses

In some cases, a Phoenix Homicide Defense Attorney may need to use expert witnesses on behalf of the defendant to challenge forensic evidence, ballistics evidence and other scientific evidence presented by the prosecution. We are prepared to do so and have worked with expert witnesses in the past to provide a vigorous defense on our clients’ behalf.


In addition to fighting your charges at trial (or seeking a case dismissal for lack of probable cause), we can also negotiate with the prosecution to seek a favorable plea agreement. A plea agreement might involve a plea to a lesser offense or an agreement on sentencing that will significantly reduce the penalties you face.


Homicide Defense Strategy

We will take the time to talk to witnesses, investigate what really happened in your case, understand what evidence is in the prosecution’s possession, look for holes in the prosecution’s case, and determine if the police violated your constitutional rights or made other critical errors that can be used to your advantage.

We are committed to raising a strong and comprehensive defense on your behalf. Depending on the facts of your case, the following defenses and strategies may be helpful:


  • Self-Defense
  • Insanity
  • Mistaken Identity
  • Suppression of Evidence
  • Challenging DNA, Fingerprint Evidence and other Forensic Evidence
  • Challenging Ballistics Evidence (Relating to Firearms and Bullets)
  • Challenging the Reliability of an Eyewitness
  • Challenging Whether the Evidence Sustains a Murder Conviction
  • Negotiation with the Prosecution to Determine if a Plea Agreement Could

Significantly Minimize the Charges or Penalties you Face
