Assault Case Results

To see just how successful our approach is, here are some representative results:

State v. T.E.

August, 2020
Charges: 5th Degree Assault - Misdemeanor

Continuance for Dismissal. Client had no defense. She allegedly assaulted a fellow wedding-goer for no reason, except for a possible mental health breakdown. The client took immediate proactive steps following the incident, specifically directed at figuring out what caused the incident. After completing the same and demonstrating that this truly was a one-night, random incident that will not happen again, the client earned this fantastic result, which preserved her clean record. She is thrilled that she got the North Star team to properly advocate for her - and use our great relationships with the prosecutors, who knew they could trust us and, therefore, our client.

State v. S.M.

June, 2020
Charges: Two separate cases - 4th Degree Assault of a Police Officer (Gross Misdemeanor) and a Disorderly Conduct case (misdemeanor) - McLeod County

Plea to the 4th Degree Assault, sentenced as a misdemeanor, and the disorderly conduct case was dismissed in its entirety. On top of this great outcome, the client was ordered to do no further time in custody or community service - despite probation recommending an additional 120 hours of community service. The fine was the bare minimum that could be imposed, too. The client is battling alcoholism, which led to these charges. She was also on probation at the time of the incident for a felony 4th degree assault of a police officer and picked up a DWI, too. Despite all of that, the North Star team successfully negotiated this a misdemeanor outcome. Proactive steps by the client are instrumental. And this client did everything she could to earn this outcome.

State v. C.T.

February, 2020
Charges: 4th Degree Assault involving an officer - Felony; 5th Degree assault - Misdemeanor

Plea to the 5th Degree Assault as a misdemeanor and the felony assault of an officer is dismissed. Client was charged with the felony for spitting on an officer during an anger outburst directed at officers, which included plentiful foul language and culminated in the spitting episode. Despite an ugly scene caught on body camera, the client was able to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault that involved him wrestling with his roommate and the ENTIRETY of his misconduct with the officer was dismissed. He has no jail to serve and his probation is simple. The client was proactive throughout the duration of the case. But, even then, avoiding this serious felony and any factual basis involving the cop, is damn near a miracle. The client is ecstatic because it puts him back on track with his career, for which he had just finished schooling prior to sentencing.

State v. K.Y.

February, 2020
Charges: Misdemeanor 5th Degree Assault

Stay of adjudication to a disorderly conduct. The client was a young female with a bright future. An unfortunate chain of events during the early morning hours after bar close time led to this charge. With a career at stake, the North Star team helped advise the client what proactive steps she needed to take in order to best advocate for her during negotiations. In doing so, the attorneys at North Star were able to move the prosecutor - from a tough jurisdiction - off a permanent conviction to this outcome, where the client will be able to earn a dismissal of the case once she completes probation and is set up for an expungement only a year later. A terrific result for a deserving client.

State v. K.M.

December, 2019
Charges: 5th Degree Assault - Misdemeanor

Stay of adjudication on a disorderly conduct charge. The client had a plausible self-defense claim. But he also had enough self-awareness to realize that his imposing presence compared to that of a complaining witness that was half his size would be tough to overcome. Leveraging the defense and willingness to go to trial, the client was thrilled to get an outcome in which he could earn a dismissal of the record, without a conviction, once he completes probation. And he also knows that he is presumed to get an expungement one short year later. For a young man that will be completing school around the same time frame, this terrific result via negotiations was too much to turn down and he was happy to move forward, without having to have this case hold him back.

State v. C.E.

September, 2019
Charges: Felony 1st Degree Burglary, Assault, and Aid and Abet counts

Case entirely DISMISSED, recharged single count of Misdemeanor Burglary, with a Stay of Adjudication. Client avoids a permanent turpitude felony, or worse, with this negotiated outcome. A raid on a drug seller's house, with multiple injuries and gunpoint-threat allegations, resolves without a conviction for a young and talented man, now facing a future without limitations and without a day spent in custody. Absolutely stellar outcome, which would not have been possible without patience and thoughtfulness provided by Mr. Adkins and the North Star Team.

State v. P.M.

August, 2019
Charges: 2nd Degree Assault with a Dangerous Weapon - Felony

Stay of Imposition - Misdemeanor record after probation. Because of the discharge of a weapon, the client was looking at a mandatory minimum prison commitment of 36 months. Mr. Adkins masterfully maneuvered through the case and found a judge that bought into the client. Over the State's request, the judge departed from the prison commitment and even granted a stay of imposition. Further, the client didn't have to serve more than the two days in jail that he served upon arrest. With the conditions of probation basically only requiring the client to remain law abiding and sober, the client will earn a misdemeanor conviction. A truly remarkable outcome, achieved because of North Star's strategic and persuasive counsel.

State v. J.J.

July, 2019
Charges: 3rd Degree Assault - Felony

Stay of Imposition, with a minimal term in custody. The facts of this case were not pretty in the sense that the client hospitalized his roommate over an innocuous argument. The client rebounded perfectly following the incident by seeking mental health treatment and refocusing his life around supportive family and friends. Due to this, he earned the opportunity to have a misdemeanor conviction following his probationary term. For a young man with a bright future, his regrettable decisions on a single night will not have to define him for life.

State v. S.I.

April, 2019
Charges: 5th Degree Assault - Misdemeanor

Stay of Adjudication to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The North Star team was retained a week before the trial. After getting the trial continued - over the State's objection - the firm immediately began utilizing its relationships with the local prosecutor's office and leveraged the self-defense claim (albeit, not a strong one) into such a crucial outcome for the client. Because this will never be a conviction, the client can continue pursuing her social services career and will not have a bad night, after bar-close fight hold her back.
