NOT CHARGED | AGGRAVATED ASSAULT – (Maricopa County) (DMC No. 6977): Ms. K. had a very volatile relationship with her boyfriend and had recently broken up with him. When she went to his house to retrieve her items, he became abusive and violent towards her. Ms. K. had 2 male companions who then engaged in a fight with her boyfriend.

No charges were brought against her, and she avoided being charged with a crime that carried a range of 5 to 15 years in prison.
