Indictment without evidence

A client asked us to represent her in a criminal case related to harassment and threats made to her boyfriend.

At the beginning of the hearings, the DA requested, due to the seriousness of the infraction in its opinion, the imposition of an effective prison sentence on our client – not less than be sent behind bars.

Although the serious indictment was amended and even “softened” in accordance with our demand after a legal battle, the DA insisted on the imposition of an effective prison sentence.

The client underwent an interrogation (investigation) with a probation officer who made non-positive recommendations for our client.

After an argument and exchange of legal arguments between me and the prosecutors and after all attempts to reach a plea agreement-bargain, the honorable judge was forced to draw up a ruling/verdict.

The verdict was written at the same hour, without the presence of the parties. It was decided that my client would not be sentenced to prison, and was given a lighter sentence in a total of 150 hours of community service and, to the dismay of the prosecution and at my request, as I argued before the judge, the client was not convicted and would not have a criminal record.
