In the past, a client came to our firm having been charged with two counts of burglary. Both of these charges were 3 rd degree felonies which carry a 1-5 year prison sentence. As well, our client may have had to pay exorbitant fines, deal with marks on his criminal record, and serve in community service. With so many punishments awaiting this client, there was a lot of serious logistics to work through.
At our firm, we were able to arrange a meeting with the prosecution and discuss the lack of evidence in the case. We showed why we did not believe that our client was guilty of the charges and why this client should not need to spend time in prison for a crime that could not be proven. Eventually, the prosecution capitulated, and admitted that they would dismiss all charges against our client. This means that our client was able to walk away from the case without any sentence because the court chose to abandon prosecution.
