State v. N.M., April, 2019
Charges: Misdemeanor Domestic Assault
Resolution: Continuance for dismissal to an amended count of disorderly conduct. The client had no criminal record, but had engaged in rather poor behavior overall (though the assaultive behavior was not severe) due to a multi-day alcohol binge. The client was extremely proactive in addressing his underlying alcohol and mental health issues. With this, the North Star team leveraged their good relationship with the prosecutor and obtained this incredible outcome for a needful client.
