Case Conclusion Date: 08.25.2015
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client charged with Shoplifting under Bellingham Municipal Code 10.12.020. This is a misdemeanor crime of dishonesty exposing him up to 90 days jail and a $1,000.00 fine. Making matters worse, there was reliable video surveillance of the act. At first, the Prosecutor wanted Client to plead guilty as charged. Through careful negotiations, however, Mr. Ransom persuaded the Prosecutor to enter a 1-year Deferred Sentence with no jail. This means Client's case will be dismissed after one year as long as he pays court fines and completes 8 hours of community service. This was a very good resolution for Client, who was a family man with no prior criminal convictions. He avoids a crime of dishonesty and maintains his clean record after the case is dismissed.
