Felony Burglary and Perjury Charges Dismissed. Client Pleads to Misdemeanor and is Released.
Our client was charged with significant felonies and offered a state prison sentence. Our office substituted into the case and challenged the state’s evidence. We believed that although a crime had been committed, it did not rise to the level of felony conduct.
We challenged the state’s evidence and proceeded to preliminary hearing where we cross-examined the arresting officers.
Following the preliminary hearing in this matter, we were then offered the opportunity to plead to a misdemeanor charge and to have both felonies dismissed.
Our client was released from custody without being a convicted felon. He was able to remain in this country and keep his greencard. As you can see from page 3 of this case report, the felonies were dismissed.
