Case Results

State v. T.B., June, 2017

Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor

Resolution: Client pled to a misdemeanor careless driving with no jail to serve, a minimum fine, and only one-year on probation to the Court. In addition, the client did not have to waive his fight in the implied consent case. Ultimately, the license revocation that automatically happens following a DWI was rescinded. The end result for the client - no DWI on both his criminal and driving records. This is a clean sweep, victory for the client.

State v. D.V., June, 2017

Charges: 1st Degree Assault - Sentencing Attorney only

Resolution: Probationary sentence. Mr. Adkins was retained with less than two months to counsel and advise the client on how to position himself best for a life-altering sentencing hearing. Through this counseling, the client became proactive in obtaining services while in custody and wrote a thoughtful letter, demonstrating his remorse and acceptance of responsibility for his actions. The judge told the courtroom that he took the bench prepared to send the client to prison, pursuant to a presumptive commitment of 4+ years. After Mr. Adkins' savvy and persuasive sentencing argument, the judge reversed course and placed the client on probation and sentenced him to serve no prison time. This is truly a remarkable outcome. And it goes to show that it is critical to be sure you are prepared to fight for your future at all times throughout the case. Even at sentencing when it seems like the deck is stacked against you, the right approach and sentencing attorney can lead to incredible results.

State v. (Confidential), May 2017

Charges: Narcotics and Driving Offenses - Felony

Resolution: Complex negotiations with police officials at the University of Minnesota resulted in a decision to nolle prosequi, or declination to prosecute, for a worried young man wrestling with extreme anxiety and some unwise decisions. Relief at the outcome for the client was palpable.

State v. (Confidential), May 2017

Charges: 1st Degree Assault, Possible Attempted Murder - Felony

Resolution: In a Washington County matter, Dan Adkins successfully sought and received a probationary sentence for a young person who nearly killed a friend in an alcohol-fueled event. Had this matter been charged as attempted homicide, a sentence in the hundreds of months would have been the starting point, for either negotiations or a result after a guilty verdict. As it is, aggressive work by the legal team and a tremendous commitment on the part of the client to address mental health and drug/alcohol dependency issues in residential treatment brought about a remarkable result. After a relatively short spell on probationary conditions, this person can move forward positively and thoughtfully, having never visited the inside of a Minnesota Correctional Facility. Truly incredible result.

State v. (Confidential), May 2017

Charges: Domestic Assault - Misdemeanor

Resolution: Dan and James worked together to not only resolve this matter via a continuance for dismissal--relatively rare for a crime wherein actual battery is verified--but executed a full and final expungement of the matter on the anniversary of the agreement. Client now moves forward with no record whatsoever, and the family he created can carry on without the burden of a criminal notation.

State v. (Confidential), May 2017

Charges: Theft (Receiving Stolen Property) - Felony

Resolution: Client with multiple counts of identical conduct, also on probation for similar offenses, avoided a prison term or even additional jail, via reduced counts and stays of imposition. Radically fast action by our lawyers and contrition on the part of the client avoided a mandatory minimum prison term, and sets the young man up to continue raising his family without fear of interdiction.

State v. S.B., May 2017

Charges: 2nd Degree DWI - Gross Misdemeanor

Resolution: 2nd Degree DWI case in Dakota County. After extensive negotiations, a strange DUI arrest shortly after a client resolved the last matter in which she was involved closed with no jail time required, a car returned notwithstanding a proper basis for forfeiture, and virtually no fine or other consequences. Stunning success, for a fantastic young lady.

State v. A.V., May 2017

Charges: 1st Degree DWI - Felony

Resolution: Case out of Anoka County. After motion practice, Client permitted to plead to a gross misdemeanor offense with only house arrest, a minimum fine, and drastically reduced probation, solely to the Court. Perhaps most importantly--even with complete avoidance of a felony conviction--the client's vehicle was returned at no cost. A great result for a felony charge.

State v. A.N., May, 2017

Charges: Pre-Charge - Possible misdemeanor domestic assault charges

Resolution: No formal charges. The client contacted North Star within hours of the alleged incident happening. Immediately, our team got on the phone to contact the prosecutor. In doing so, we bought time to provide additional information for the prosecutor's consideration when making a decision whether to charge our client or not. Based upon the information provided, the prosecutor gave our client the opportunity to earn the chance to never be charged with the domestic assault. Our client eagerly completed the requested proactive steps, leading to the prosecutor to formally acknowledge that she will never be charged. This was an absolutely critical outcome for a person in the nursing field, where even a charge of domestic assault can lead to the possibility of losing her career. What makes this outcome that much more impressive is that the prosecutor commented that he had never, in his several decades as a city prosecutor, done anything like this before. Needless to say, the client was thrilled that she immediately got the North Star team on her side.

State v. T.S., May, 2017

Charges: 4th Degree DWI - Misdemeanor

Resolution: Plea to Failing to Drive with Due Care. This is a prime example of how Mr. Gempeler is undeterred in seeking extraordinary results on routine cases. Client's alcohol reading was .08. Immediately and predictably, the city's offer was a careless driving, with an opportunity to fight the license revocation. Most attorneys grab this at the first hearing, sell their clients on this incredible outcome, and make a lot of money quickly and easily. We try harder, though. Utilizing what leverage existed from some legal issues, Mr. Gempeler artfully negotiated the failing to drive with due care plea. It pays to ensure you get the right team that will fight for the best possible outcome.
