New attorney wins assault, malicious mischief trial

New attorney Isabelle Askanas won a trial Sept. 13 in Clark County District Court, only a month after receiving her Washington state bar license.

Her client was arrested March 30 after a neighbor in his complex called 911 to report he could hear people screaming and crying in the apartment, specifically a woman yelling at a man to get out.

The client, 47, was accused of grabbing his fiancée’s 20-year-old niece during an argument, threatening to kill her and destroying her cell phone. He was charged with fourth-degree assault, harassment and malicious mischief in the third degree.

The harassment charge was dismissed before trial by an assistant Vancouver city attorney, who acknowledged the alleged victim was not going to show up and testify. He would have needed her testimony to prove she was threatened by the client.

Meyer wins domestic violence assault trial

Attorney Zeed Meyer’s client was recently acquitted of domestic violence assault in Clark County District Court.

Meyer said the jury deliberated approximately 90 minutes before returning a not-guilty verdict at the end of a daylong trial July 10.

At the time of the alleged assault, Meyer’s client was separated from his wife and mother of two daughters. His wife and children were staying with his parents, and he stopped by the residence to say goodnight to daughters. His youngest daughter said she wanted to go home with him, and so he took her home.

His wife, after agreeing to the arrangement, called him and they got into a fight about an unpaid bill. She told him she wished he was dead, and then drove to the family home. She called 911 and claimed that her estranged husband had struck her in the face at the front door. Officers who responded noted that one of her cheeks appeared red.

Meyer wins another assault trial

Attorney Zeed Meyer won another domestic violence assault trial, this one involving a father accused of punching his adult son.

Jurors deliberated for one hour before unanimously finding Meyer’s client not guilty of fourth-degree assault, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.

During the Aug. 8 trial in Clark County District Court, Meyer’s client, the alleged victim and the alleged victim’s husband each gave jurors a different version of what happened on Sept. 30, 2018. Meyer’s client had been staying with his son and son-in-law.

Client acquitted of assault, malicious mischief charges

Attorney Neil Anderson won a trial July 5 in Clark County District Court for a client charged with assault in the fourth degree and malicious mischief in the third degree.

The client was arrested April 10 after he tried to retrieve a cell phone that had belonged to his late brother, who had died approximately three weeks earlier. His brother had always allowed him to use the phone, he testified.

He told jurors he asked his late brother’s girlfriend for the phone and she refused to give it to him. The two were roommates at the time, and he went into her bedroom to get the phone. The alleged victim testified that he moved her out of the way to try and get into the bedroom. When she called 911 on April 10, she said she’d been thrown to the ground.
