Probation Violation Case Results

Probation Violation Case Results

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

State v. B.S.

July, 2020
Charges: Felony Theft and Controlled Substance Violations - Probation Violations

In this matter, a client who was initially a co-defendant to a North Star client sought and received a waiver of conflict from that first client, so she could benefit from the assistance of Messrs. Adkins and Gempeler, to undo the damage of her awful plea negotiation. Even though she'd essentially airmailed her probationary obligations, and stood likely to lose both a stay of imposition and could be sent to prison, Mr. Adkins secured no jail time, no involuntary treatment obligations, and reduction of the counts to misdemeanors. Remarkable results, for a client now heavily motivated to make the necessary changes to avoid similar pitfalls.

State v. D.U.

July, 2020
Charges: Early Discharge from Probation Sought - Aggravated Drug Crimes (Mower County)

Early discharge from probation. In this matter, North Star received a call from a desperate client, seeking to cut off the back half of a massive term of probation, totaling twenty-five years. Mr. Adkins took him on, and filed a ream of documents supporting early termination, though such results are incredibly and increasingly rare to obtain. Not only did the Court grant the early termination, it did so without a formal hearing. Quite frankly, this outcome was greater and more comprehensive than the lawyers at North Star had dared to seek. While we certainly cannot guarantee outcomes, we have prevailed often enough in these pursuits that it cannot make sense not to reach out, if you face a long probation term, or encounter other collateral consequences to your interaction with the court system that serve as obstacles. We can help, but only if we know who you are, and what you face. Call now.

State v. B.S.

July, 2020
Charges: Probation Violation on Mail Theft and Drug Crimes - Felonies

Early Discharge from Probation. This probation violation was supported by reams of documentation of failures on the part of Mr. Adkins' new client, but a term of restorative work (and commitment to sobriety) by the client and artful arguments via Zoom technology meant the client is not only not headed to prison or jail, but will be released from probation early with a stern lecture.... If your family member (or you) faces allegations of failure on probation, please don't hesitate to contact North Star immediately. You'll be stunned how much aggressive representation can change the outcomes.

State v. T.W.

May, 2020
Charges: Multiple Probation Violations - Gross Misdemeanor Crime

Early discharge from probation. Notwithstanding a number of breaches of his contract to be law abiding and other terms of his probation, this client was granted a short stay on home monitoring and his probation terminated 18 months early due to some serious hustle on the client's part, at Mr. Adkins' direction, and great timing on the hearing (there's no such thing as 'judge-shopping,' but savvy lawyers can move mountains when the time is right). Staggering reduction in the client's jail exposure, and a massive win.

State v. C.G.

June, 2018
Charges: Probation violation on a felony matter

Community Work Service only. This client, with enough criminal history points to qualify as a career criminal, neglected to notify probation when engaging in business transactions that necessitated approval from his agent, and was facing a stretch in state prison therefore. Mr. Adkins intervened, convinced the State to reconsider its demands, and the file will close early after some volunteer work by the client.
