    Innocent people including attorneys and prosecutors sometimes get arrested. Those of us who have practiced in DV court know at least half of those cases are BS. It is really disgusting when people take pleasure in someone else's pain or misfortune.

    If Griggs ever needed a real friend, it is now. I truly hope he has one. The world can be very ugly when you are down and out. We ALL make mistakes, very bad ones whether we want to admit them or not. If your are rejoicing in his down fall, its only because your dirty little secrets have yet to come to light.

    this makes me sad. marcus is a really nice dude.

    it sucks too because, although we all know dv cases can often times be total bs, we know how this will play out with his employer. every asa who has ever had a legal issue has been eventually let go.

    positive thoughts for marcus! if anyone is taking joy in this, please kill yourself.

    "Where are his glasses?"

    Here's the defense, in case it's filed: "Stripped of his glasses, the near blind man went to hug the love of his life and mistakenly grabbed her neck instead of her torso. She panicked and attacked him, the real victim here. I ask you, ladies of the gentlemen of the jury, do you see any glasses in this booking photo?"

    Not Guilty!

    It is UNFAIR for the real victim of both a battery and a false police report to lose his job. Hopefully the SAO will see through this false police report and not punish the real victim.

    Shame on spouses and significant others who misuse the DV system to punish their partners. Especially attorneys who know how dire the consequences are for the victim. Even though the case is almost always dismissed collateral damage for the Victim is huge including suspension, demotion, termination, bar issues and long term career consequences. Here is to hoping the SAO will not use a false police report to revictimize the Victim.

    Those of us who know Marcus can say that he is a good person, friend, father, colleague and excellent attorney and litigator. Hang in there Marcus, when it rains it pours. First the RC screwed you and now your wife. Looks like they want to keep you from working and following your dreams. Hopefully the SAO sees the writing on the wall and does not let such RAW talent go to waste.

    You the know the police report is false when the lying wife calls the SAO telling them Marcus is home sick when she knows he is in-custody probably at bond hearings.

    There is no excuse for her conduct. Just because she may have been experiencing marital difficulties and possibly the onset of a divorce does not give her the right to misuse her position and knowledge as an ASA to effect a false report and arrest and jeopardize his job, license and career. That is BS!

    Police officers are rarely terminated when a complaint is NOT sustained. Prosecutors deserve the same protection. Any arrest, even a false arrest, should not be used to immediately terminate the person. The arrest/complaint should be investigated and terminating the victim of a false complaint is UNFAIR.

    Whoa now this had turned into his wife is lying and making everything up! Because victims of DV never enable their abuser and lie about their bruises or cover up for them with family/work. I know both Marcus and his wife personally. They are both great people and obviously going through some stuff. Marcus has been going around the past few months lying about the real reason he got fired from regional, lying to his old coworkers about being divorced from his wife and other nonsense. He has got plenty of friends that are defense attys who will prob plea his case down to a misd and get some anger management and no jail time. But he needs to get a hold of himself and start making better choices.

    If you know Marcus personally than you know he is not a violent person, does not have anger problem and did not beat his wife. Wanting to divorce your wife or possible allegations of infedility do not give his wife the right to get him arrested and force him to stay with her. We live in America where pursuit of life liberty is open to all. No one should be forced or threatened with criminal charges to stay in an unhappy marriage. And even a good woman can become despetate to hold on to her man.

    Wife goes through husbands messages. Finds something suggesting she doesnt approve of. Begins beating him incessantly and hides his keys. He manages to leave the home. She calls the police and files a dv report. eventually the enormity of the consequences hits her, especially loss of income. She tells the truth aka recanting. Is she a dv victim? I think not. Does he deserve to be,punished for her conduct? I think not.

    Just because you think you "know him" so well doesn't mean he isn't capable of hiding his tendencies to hit at home. No one really knows how people are in the comfort of their own homes out of the public eye and in a place they dont have to act like the good guy to everyone. You are probably one of those people since you are trying so hard to defend him without knowing their intimate details at home. Probably some judge or big time attoney that thinks he is above it all and has his little kiss ass followers making him feel ever so important.

    I read the sun sentinel article. It was conveniently based on her original report. It failed to mention that she later admitted to hitting him on the head several times, holding a knife hiding his keys and preventing him from leaving. As he walked out she told him she would END HIS CAREER. And then she made good on her threat and called the police and LIED! Realizing the error of her ways, she continued to abuse her authority as an ASA by later calling the police officer and asking him not to file the report. And she lied and called in sick for Marcus. If anyone should be fired it should be her.

    As for the FL bar hopefully nothing. He must report the incident and they take it from there.And if the complaint is false and unfounded then he will be okay.

    That is a cool strategy, they could prove she was lying for him. Then they could subsequently say her credibility stinks and would have to drop the case. Seeing as she is the only witness, she has set a precedent for lying right in this case. Yikes.

    I agree with you. His case was dropped. It also sucks that he got fired at RC, but then again doesn't everybody? Nothing against Marcus, however RC office is a diabolical joke, u get a new attorney every month, cuz the old one was fired, this goes on and on, RC counsel never shows at hearing . . . That is a waste of taxpayer's money. Whoever is running the show there . . should be replaced. This can't continue much longer without intervention from a higher authority. Marcus should be fine, he is not disbarred. He is so smart, he needs to get into private practice anyway, so this will turn out to be a good thing.
