Mayweather Sr. is due back in court on March 27 in Las Vegas court and will attend with his lawyers to fight against him.There are several ways our Las Vegas criminal defense attorneys fight against such charges. Common defenses are:the accused acted in self-defense;the incident was an accident; or the alleged victim made up the whole abuse story and perhaps self-inflicted his/her injuries And if the police may have conducted an illegal search, the judge can "suppress" any incriminating evidence they found. This in turn may leave the prosecutor with too weak of a case to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Mayweather's defense is saying that she made this all up for money. With the fame of his son and boxing career it is easy to believe why people would be after such a thing, as greed can make desperate people do anything for money, including making up stories.
