Description: Client charged with Felony Harassment (Threats to Kill) under RCW 9A.46.020 after responding to a tense situation where he thought his wife was in danger. Client displayed a firearm. Victim called the police. Client was arrested and charged with Felony Harassment, which is a Class C felony punishable up to 5 years prison and a $10,000 fine. Mr. Ransom Interviewed the alleged victim and convinced Prosecutor that the incident was a huge misunderstanding; albeit a potentially tragic one. Prosecutor was also convinced that Client may have displayed the firearm lawfully under the circumstances. Consequently, Mr. Ransom and Prosecutor entered favorable negotiations. Prosecutor dismissed the Felony Harassment charge from Superior Court and re-filed the matter in District Court. Although client pled guilty to Unlawful Display of a Firearm under RCW 9.41.270, client shall serve no jail and pay minimum fines. Better yet, the case in its entirety shall eventually be dismissed under a 1-year deferred sentence. Later, Mr. Ransom filed a Motion for Return of Property and successfully obtained the client's knife, gun holster and ammunition from the Sheriff's Office.
