A woman who was being legally represented by
Attorney Navid Alband is no longer charged with murder! Our firm's client-- a 33-year-old
woman who lives in the Springtown, Texas area--was able to get her murder
charge dropped based on the fact that her polygraph test results supported
her claim that she killed her boyfriend as an act of self-defense. The
details of this case result were included in a recent article in the
Here is how our client is explaining the incident that led to her boyfriend's
death. She claims that he attacked her, physically stopped her from leaving
her home and knocked a phone from her hand. She stated that after giving
off a warning shot, she ended up fatally shooting him because he was reaching
for the gun. When describing the altercation that occurred before the
shooting, the defendant told the Weatherford Democrat that her boyfriend
was hitting her, pushing her and throwing her to the ground.
The news publication reported that our client and her boyfriend had been
dating for a couple of months and he had been living with her. She is
reported to have told her supervisor and co-workers that he had attacked
her days before the fatal incident and that he was going to be moving out.
After the woman was charged, the founder of our firm, Mr. Alband, advised
her to take a polygraph test. The test results backed up her story that
she shot her boyfriend in self-defense. This resulted in the prosecuting
attorneys in the case asking the Park County district judge to drop the
murder charge she was facing. Fortunately, the judge approved the request,
which cleared our client's name and restored her freedom.
Attorney Alband was quoted in the Weatherford Democrat article. He praised
the District Attorney for his decision, and he stated that his client
had stuck to her self-defense claim from the very start of the case. According to the
Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer, the more the investigation progressed, the more it became apparent that
the woman's story remained consistent throughout the entire processed.
In addition to being backed up by her polygraph test, her story was also
backed up by independent crime scene analysis and interviews, Attorney
Alband said. Due to the fact that our client's charge was dropped,
she was able to go to Houston to visit her mother, who was dealing with surgery.
