Burglary and Other Charges WithdrawnFeb 16 2015 in 2015, Case Results, Theft Crimes, Violent Crimes, Weapons Crimes
Our client was charged with a first-degree felony count of burglary, a first-degree felony count of criminal conspiracy, a third-degree felony count of carrying a firearm without a license, a first-degree misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property, and a second-degree misdemeanor count of tampering with evidence. If convicted on all counts, our client faced a maximum prison sentence of 55 years.
We represented our client at a preliminary hearing on the burglary and other charges. We negotiated with prosecutors and were able to convince them to withdraw the criminal conspiracy and tampering with evidence charges in exchange for a waiver of the preliminary hearing.
We then focused on preparing for trial. Ultimately, the prosecutors were forced to withdraw the burglary and other remaining charges.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
