SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorneys for Internet entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal said they will vigorously fight overblown and misleading charges of domestic abuse that are expected to be filed today by the District Attorney's Office in San Francisco Superior Court.

"The charges against Mr. Chahal are simply wrong. We will strongly fight and prove the allegations to be overblown," said Stuart M. Gordon of Gordon & Rees LLP, his longtime civil attorney.

Mr. Chahal's attorney noted the young woman has asked the District Attorney to withdraw the charges, filing an official affidavit of termination of investigation and presenting herself to the SFPD this week with her attorney.

"This is an example of overreaching by the DA's Office.  Even before the arraignment today, the young woman voluntarily asked the charges be dropped, met with the prosecution, and provided photographic proof of an unblemished complexion to SFPD authorities, all of which demonstrate the weakness of the allegations."

"The pictures speak volumes about the case and demonstrate the claims of aggravated assault leaked to the press are simply not true," Gordon added.
