State v. E.S. – Aggravated Stalking
E.X.'s husband and his new wife obtained a restraining order against E.S. While the restraining order was in effect, the new wife claimed that E.S. threatened her and attacked her. The Judge granted Mr. Ryczek's pretrial motion to exclude evidence regarding an altercation that E.S. had with a police officer. After opening statements, the alleged victim violated the Judge's order and blurted out the excluded evidence. Mr. Ryczek moved for a mistrial, and the judge granted the motion. The prosecutor later dismissed the Aggravated Stalking Charges against E.S.
