FELONY STRIKE CHARGES DISMISSED, CLIENT PLEADS TO MISDEMEANORS
FACTS: Client was accused of two felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon for an incident that occurred on February 2019. We defended these allegations since then to show that the matter was a self-defense claim. On May 5, 2021, we were finally able to demonstrate to the prosecution that the self-defense laws protected our client. As a result, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the two felony strike charges of PC 245(a)(1) against the client. Client will not have to be placed on any form of felony probation and the matter was resolved favorably.
