Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: My Client pled to a misdmeanor during a trial
Description: My client was originally charged with one misdemeanor and 4 felonies and was being held in jail. He as facing a maximum of 21 years in custody. As a result of our speedy trial demand, he was brought to trial within 6 months of arrest. On the second day of trial as a result of a review of our submitted jury charges, the State reduced all charges to misdemeanors. A successful argument to the Court that all the counts merged into one resulted in my client receiving only 1 misdemeanor and he was released on that charged on the time that he had served. My client was thrilled with the outcome of his case.
