Domestic Violence Charges Are Reduced to Disturbing the Peace Charges on Jury Trial Date of April 2, 2018
Kia Law Firm recently represented a client who was accused of misdemeanor Domestic Violence charges (PC 273.5). The matter was set for trial on 04/02/18. Through successful negotiations, we were able to reduce the domestic violence charge to a disturbing the peace charge Penal Code 415(2) also known as “a violation for loud noise”. Although the client had a fantastic case for trial, he preferred to resolve the matter and not go through trial. Sentencing was put over for 6 months for him to finish some classes. When we return in October 2018, he will have what is referred to as a “terminal disposition”. In other words, he will not be on any form of probation at anytime whatsoever. By having him plead to a disturbing the peace, he will have the ability to continue to maintain his gun possession rights. At Kia Law Firm, we are committed to obtaining the best possible outcome. If a client chooses not to go to trial, we still have the ability to utilize our experience in seeking reduction of charges when appropriate.
