CHARGE: Assault 2nd with Mandatory State Prison
RESULT: REDUCED to Assault 3rd Degree with Restitution
In People v. M.C., the client was charged with assault for hitting someone over the head with a beer bottle in a bar fight. Because the client had a prior felony conviction, pleading guilty or being convicted would mean a mandatory state prison sentence.
Because Mr. Nobles discovered issues with the case, he was able to negotiate a REDUCED plea to assault 3rd degree, a misdemeanor, with no jail or probation, and only $2,400 restitution.
