Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Description:REQUIRED DISCLAIMER: CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY A LAWYER. Charge/Background: Three Counts of felony Eluding. Client was involved in a high speed felony chase that proceeded through three separate counties at speeds in excess of 150 miles per hour. This resulted in felony charges of Eluding, Reckless Driving, and Driving on a Suspended License in each of the three counties. Result: All charges were dismissed in one county while the second county reduced their charges to one misdemeanor with no active jail time. In the remaining county, we were able to convince the judge to limit active jail time to a little over three months despite the fact that the sentencing guidelines called for at least 14 months active incarceration.
