Assault Case Results

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

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.

State v. R.T.

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 nursing career and will keep a clean record.

State v. S.S.

October, 2018
Charges: 5th Degree Assault - Misdemeanor

DISMISSED. Client was facing charges stemming from a fight in which he was wrongfully identified as the perpetrator. Instead, he was the peacemaker in a fight involving multiple individuals. Thankfully, Mr. Gempeler and the team at North Star diligently reviewed the witness statements and discovered that the State had charged the wrong individual based on the description of the perpetrators. With a photo of the client from the night in question, Mr. Gempeler easily persuaded the State to dismiss the case without even needing to file a formal motion.

State v. C.E.

August, 2018
Charges: First Degree Burglary, Assault - Felonies

Dismissal of Entire Complaint outright, reduction to misdemeanors only pending. This matter, concerning a young man with no criminal history inadvertently serving as a pawn in a murderous scheme to rob drug dealers by two other men, took lengthy, complex negotiations to achieve a remarkable result--dismissal of the entire complaint against Mr. Adkins' client, in favor of a misdemeanor trespass count and no jail or other sanctions, with a planned expungement of the entire matter after a brief period of probation. We do incredible things for thoughtful, coachable clients. Be that client.

State v. M.P.

June, 2018
Charges: Felony Assault - Wisconsin case

Stay of Adjudication, Misdemeanor. North Star's Dan Adkins teamed up with the incomparable Shirlene Perrin Law Firm to achieve the unthinkable. Client, who mistook one man for the fellow who had harassed and propositioned his girlfriend on an evening out, knocked that wrong man out cold, causing serious injuries and requiring ongoing care concerns. After lengthy negotiations, and maximum creativity on Shirlene's and Dan's part, the case concludes with an unaccepted guilty plea, a brief period on light conditions, and dismissal of the reduced misdemeanor count. Client will NEVER have a conviction on his record, if he complies with the terms he's accepted. Life-altering stuff, this.

State v. Confidential

May, 2018
Charges: Gross Misdemeanor Assault

Reduction to Disorderly Conduct, Stay of Adjudication. A victim reports having been choked to the point of asphyxiation by her boyfriend, and having been punched repeatedly by our client, and felony charges against the boyfriend and a nasty gross misdemeanor complaint against our man ensue. Mr. Adkins negotiated carefully and well, and potentially career-ending criminal charges will be removed outright from the record in a short period of time. No jail, no onerous terms of probation, nothing other than payment of minimal costs was required, and the client is over the moon.

State v. D.B.

March, 2018
Charges: 2nd Degree Assault and First Degree Riot - Felonies

Conviction on Receipt of Stolen Property. The client in this case, with a lengthy and troubling criminal history, faced a sentence of effective life in prison, had Hernandizing and other components been left to a judge to compile. Rather, Mr. Adkins worked with a thoughtful prosecutor to reduce the client's exposure to the sixty months he'd necessarily face as a felon handling a gun (in this case, shooting up a party where he'd been assaulted only moments before), with a count of offense being one that keeps the client eligible for Boot Camp--and a potential return home only six months out, rather than a DECADE. If you have an unfortunate prior record, for felonies, for violence, or merely for traffic violations, and your new case means trouble, call Dan Adkins and North Star NOW. There is no time to waste, and there is no time that MUST be served, if you and Dan can coordinate your defense.
