Felony Perjury Charges Dismissed

Felony Perjury Charges

RESULT

Dismissed

Due to my duty of loyalty and the protection of client confidences I will have to redact this one quite a bit. However, in essence, my client was charged with perjury as a felony in connection with several applications that she had filled out in San Mateo County. The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office alleged that my client intentionally withheld information in one application that was material to the determination as to whether or not the permit would be issued. However, from the outset I believed that we had a defensible case. But, if things got ugly, I feared that my client's one felony perjury charge could have easily turned into three after the preliminary hearing. Additionally, due to the fact that my client was not a United States Citizen we had to avoid a felony moral turpitude conviction so that my client would not suffer any adverse immigration consequences. After intensive preparation we were able to get my client's felony perjury charge dismissed in exchange for her plea to a misdemeanor violation of a city's municipal code. Although I believed that we could have gotten the entire case dismissed without any convictions if we went to trial, my Client was interested in resolving her case as fast as possible and without the risk of being convicted of a felony. In the end, my client's permit was issued and she was very happy.
