Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client was a college student charged with Malicious Mischief in the Second Degree (DV) pursuant to RCW 9A.48.080(1)(a). This crime is a Class C felony exposing him to 5 years of prison and a $10,000 fine. Making matters worse, Client also risked losing his financial aid and academic/career pursuits if he was convicted of this felony. On the night of the incident, Client allegedly became very intoxicated and destroyed his college roommates' property. After being charged, the Court entered No-Contact Orders between Client and his roommates. Client was expelled from college and moved back home to his parent's house. Despite the challenges, Mr. Ransom worked extremely hard to gain favorable outcomes. He advised Client to enroll in a drug treatment program and work a full-time job. After Client completed treatment, Mr. Ransom petitioned the court to rescind the No-Contact Orders so that Client could be re-admitted to college and complete his education. Next, Mr. Ransom persuaded Prosecutor to admit Client into Drug Court through Whatcom County Superior Court. This gave Client an opportunity to dismiss the felony charges if Client paid for the damages to his roommate's property and successfully completed Drug Court's 18-month program without any flaws or relapses. Client did so. His charges were dismissed.
