Gwinnett County Law Firm Wins Animal Cruelty & Self Defense Case
Defense Attorneys Pat McDonough and Trinity Hundredmark successfully defended Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle, Jonathan Babineaux, when he was arrested on a charge of felony animal cruelty. The felony animal-cruelty charge was dropped based on self-defense. However, this would not have been possible without McDonough and Hundredmark conducting an extensive investigation, interviewing both lay and expert witnesses, and ultimately putting together the sequence of events that led up to the dog attacking Babineaux’s infant child and Babineaux defending his child’s life. Through this thorough investigation, McDonough and Hundredmark were able to prove the State’s case was based on a false scientific premise. As a result of their hard work, the charges were dropped prior to an indictment, allowing Babineaux to sign a new multi-million dollar contract with the Falcons.
