Over the last two weeks I’ve had some very satisfying settlements:
- Vehicle Code 23152(a)/(b), DUI with Prior, multi-car accident, the prosecutor initially sought 4 years probation and 120 days jail – charges reduced to “Dry” Reckless Driving, 2 years of summary/informal probation and 5 days jail.
- Penal Code 243(e)(1) Domestic Violence Battery, Probation Department recommended 3 years probation and 30 days jail – my client received 3 years probation with no jail time.
- Penal Code 530.5, Identity Theft/Misuse of Personal Information, 3 counts, Felonies – reduced to 1 count of misdemeanor Identity Theft, sentenced to 3 years summary/informal probation, no jail time.
And even more rewarding than any settlement:
- Penal Code 242 Battery – case dismissed without going to trial.
