State v. A.S., February, 2017
Charges: Threats of Violence - Felony
Resolution: Dismissed. This matter concerned a felony count of Threats of Violence, and allegations of gunpoint menacing during a road rage incident (which could have led to an amended complaint including a Second Degree Assault count, with potential prison implications). Mr. Adkins got the case dismissed on the morning trial was set to begin, after extensive wrangling and legal arguments/motions. The client, whose record contains a number of previously felony convictions, saw his position get markedly improved when the North Star Criminal Defense motion practice placed the admissibility of those convictions into the atmosphere. Needless to say, the client is extremely pleased.
