No Conviction for Home Invasion ChargesNov 18 2014 in 2014, 2014 Case Results, Case Results, Violent Crimes
Police believed our client was involved in an alleged home invasion that was motivated by drugs and gang warfare. Our client was charged with burglary, robbery, aggravated assault, and criminal conspiracy. He faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 to 10 years for each of the charges, making for a total possible sentence of 20 to 40 years in prison for the charges connected to the home invasion. He knew he was in serious trouble and reached out to the Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC for help.
We reviewed the case and approached the prosecutor about a plea deal. We were able to negotiate for an offer of a 2 to 4-year total sentence. However, our client maintained his innocence and wanted to go to trial. We rejected the plea offer and fought the charges in court. Ultimately, we were able to secure a verdict from the jury of not guilty on all of the charges connected to the home invasion.
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.
