Case Conclusion Date:February 8, 2013
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:One charge dismissed, probation given
Description:Client was charged with multiple offenses that resulted in sentencing guideline scores that started at 36 months in the Michigan Department of Corrections. Such a sentence for Mr. Secontine's elderly client would have likely had dire consequences. Swift pretrial discovery and investigation were conducted and significant positive information for the client was located. In the end, a 20 year felony was dismissed and a probationary sentence on a much lower charge was secured.
