Domestic Assault Charges Dropped After Wife Recants Tale
Email Print
A man charged with aggravated domestic assault had his charges dismissed Tuesday thanks to the complaining witness recanting her story.

Tracy Mitchell Young appeared before General Sessions Judge Susan Melton on Tuesday on the charges of aggravated domestic assault and domestic assault.  During a preliminary hearing, the complaining witness, Young’s wife, testified everything she told deputies on the night of the incident was a lie and the Young did not assault her.  The victim told deputies on May 28th that Young got into a fight with her and pulled out a gun and began shooting it in the air.  But when called to the stand to testify on Tuesday, the victim said she was lying that night because she was mad at Young.

Under cross examination by Assistant District Public Defender Ken McKnight, the victim began crying as she told the Court that she was not afraid of Young and that she made the story up.  She also said that, in fact, she was the one who assaulted Young.  Considering the victim’s statements, Judge Melton said she had no choice but to dismiss the case.  She warned the victim, however, that, given her conduct, she could possibly be charged with perjury or filing a false report.  No word yet on what, if any, charges the victim may face.
