State v. S.E.

June, 2019
Charges: Misdemeanor School Stop-Arm Violation

Stay of adjudication. The state initially demanded a plea to the count as charged with a significant fine. After some negotiating, the state reduced its offer to a petty misdemeanor, which is a non-crime and not a bad outcome. Undeterred, the North Star team knew how to leverage a potential contested hearing into an outcome in which the client will earn a dismissal after the one-year probationary period on the stay of adjudication. And the fine remained the same as the original offer. Point being, the North Star team correctly navigated this case to get the client the best possible outcome to avoid creating a criminal record over a traffic matter.
