State v. T.L., April, 2018
Charges: 1st Degree Arson - Felony, Mandatory Prison Commitment
Resolution: Stay of Imposition to an amended count of 3rd Degree Arson. In addition to getting a stay of imposition in which the client's criminal record will be a misdemeanor after successful completion of probation, the State also agreed not to charge an additional felony count. The client has half the time in jail the State was requesting and minimal conditions for her to follow in order to earn that misdemeanor record. For a single mother with a bright future, the client was thrilled to avoid prison and a felony record.
