State v. A.B., June, 2016
Charges: Client had four pending cases - 3 separate cases with the same charge - DANCO Violation - and the fourth case included the following charges: 4th Degree Assault of an Officer, Obstruction of Legal Process, 4th Degree DWI, DANCO Violation, and petty drug possession. These four cases were venued in two different counties - Anoka and St. Louis.
Resolution: Client pled to three misdemeanor charges: Obstruction of Legal Process, 4th Degree DWI, and DANCO Violation. Client has no jail time to serve and must complete standard programming for chemical dependency and domestic abuse. This was an incredible result for a client that, at one time, had five pending domestic-related matters. In the end, he will have no new jail time, minimal fines, and be on probation with standard conditions. For a young man with no criminal record, limiting the damage to only one domestic-related conviction, a single DWI, and an obstruction is a home run. The client is ecstatic and thrilled with this outcome.
