Case Conclusion Date: 10.08.2008
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Outcome: Dismissed All Charges
Description: Client faced serious felony charges surrounding his alleged involvement in a home invasion where the victim was brutally beaten. The Burglary and Assault charges are "strike offenses." Also, the Burglary charge was a Class A felony exposing client to life in prison (25 years) and $50,000 fine. Fortunately, Mr. Ransom's pretrial investigations revealed client took no part in the home invasion; nor did he have any knowledge that his co-defendants were involved either. Mr. Ransom filed a Knapstad motion to dismiss. Later, Mr. Ransom and Prosecutor entered a favorable resolution. Prosecutor dismissed the felonies in exchange for client pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge of Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer under RCW 9A.76.020. Client received no jail, paid minimum fines and was not monitored by DOC or a parole officer.
