Sentence reduced from 10 Years Prison to 1 Year
Client faced felony aggravated assault charges concerning shooting incident with family member. The prosecutor had recommended 10 years prison, and evidence was uncontradicted that the shooting occurred, but our thorough defense work uncovered multiple mitigating circumstances about the facts of the case, and proved that our client was arguably acting in self-defense, whereafter a judge imposed a sentence of 1 year in prison not 10 years, saving our client from serving the entire 10 years in prison due to parole guidelines for aggravated assault cases. Client was thankful for the significantly reduced punishment, did his time, and got out to lead a productive life. We were happy to help give him a second chance to do so.
