State v. A.S., October, 2015
Charges: Underage Consumption and Speeding
Resolution: Continuance for dismissal on both charges. The prosecutor's initial offer was for client to plead to one charge as a petty misdemeanor and dismiss the other. Through strategic and persuasive negotiations, Mr. Gempeler talked the prosecutor into giving a continuance for dismissal on minimal court costs, thereby allowing the client the ability to keep his criminal and driving record clean. An important result for a college student.
