Clients Facing 12 Years In Prison For Felony Domestic Violence Charges Instead Serves 60 Days in County Jail and 9 Months In Treatment or Work Furlough
Felony Domestic Violence Charges
No Prison Time
My client was charged with 4 felony strikes and two misdemeanor counts of domestic violence. Amongst other things, my client was charged with domestic violence causing serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and grossly negligent discharge of a firearm. My client's actions caused his girlfriend to spend three weeks in the hospital for suffering a broken nose, broken left wrist, and a fracture to her forehead. My client's girlfriend needed to have a titanium plate to be surgically placed into her wrist and stitches to close the four inch gash across her forehead. For his actions my client was facing a total of 12 years in state prison. Remarkably, through skillful defense work my client was able to successfully resolve his case for no state prison time. In fact, my client only had to serve 60 days in the county jail with the remainder of his nine month sentence to be served in either a residential treatment program or Work Furlough.
