People v. MM (Assault on a Peace Officer)

William W. Bruzzo

Case Conclusion Date:February 8, 2012

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Dismissed with plea to disturbing the peace

Description:I was charged with Penal Code Section 243(b) [Assault on a peace officer] and Penal Code Section 148(a) (1) [Resisting Arrest] for an altercation I got into with police. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me in this matter because of his familiarity with the courts, the judges and the prosecutor. The initial offer was that I plead guilty to the offenses and serve time in jail. However, Mr. Bruzzo continued to negotiate and in the end he got the charges DISMISSED once I pled to a Penal Code Section 415(1), [Disturbing the Peace]. The Agreement also permits me to withdraw the case and dismiss it entirely in 1 year. As such I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any criminal matter.
