Outcome: All Strikes Acquitted or Hung at Trial
Description: Client was charged with Residential Burglary, 4 Counts of Assault on Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest and a lengthy car chase. We offered to plead to the car chase. At trial evidence was presented showing the officers' statements were less than truthful. Jury convicted of the Evading, but acquitted on two counts of assault, the resisting arrest and hung on the Burglary, and final two counts of Assault. At subsequent trial the assault charges were reduced from strikes (requiring lifetime Driver's License Ban) to simple felonies to run concurrent to the other time. Client was initially charged with 5 STRIKES but now has none.
