State v. E.M., October, 2018
Charges: Misdemeanor Theft - Shoplifting
Resolution: Continuance for dismissal. Despite the State's initial offer being a good offer, one that is common for most shoplifting cases, the North Star team still pushed, highlighting the client's good overall record, positive facts about the case, and her career ambitions for why a better result - the best possible result - was appropriate and needful. For a young mother, keeping her record clear was critical in order to best provide for her family in the future.
