In People v. C.C., the defendant was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree after her boyfriend shot off a pistol in the parking lot at a wedding. The handgun was unlicensed and illegal in New York, and since it belonged to C.C., she was indicted by the Grand Jury. If convicted she faced a minimum of 3.5 years in prison.
After extensive negotiations with the District Attorney's Office, based on the unique circumstances brought to light by Mr. Nobles, C.C. pled to the REDUCED CHARGE of Attempted Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd Degree and received 5 years probation and NO JAIL TIME.
