Case Conclusion Date: 02.09.2017
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client was charged with Malicious Mischief Third Degree Domestic (DV) under RCW 9A.48.090. This is a gross misdemeanor punishable up to 1 year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Making matters worse, the charge was designated as "domestic violence," which lends itself to increased penalties, evaluations, treatment and loss of gun rights if Client was convicted. Here, she was allegedly under the influence when she destroyed her boyfriend's door after he locked her out and called police during an argument. Despite the challeges, Mr. Ransom contacted the boyfriend and persuaded him to enter a Compromise of Misdemeanor. This allows dismissal of the charges if the victim is paid back the value of their property loss. Mr. Ransom also persuaded Prosecutor to enter this resolution. The case was dismissed and the No-Contact Order was rescinded.
