STATE v. MC a child

The Charge:

2nd Degree Felony Fleeing to Elude
3rd Degree Felony Burglary of Unoccupied Structure
1st Degree Misdemeanor Obstruction of Justice

The Result:

Probation


Client charged with 2nd Degree Felony Fleeing to Elude, 3rd Degree Felony Burglary of Unoccupied Structure, and 1st Degree Misdemeanor Obstruction of Justice. Client had a score sheet that would have likely earned him detention without negotiation. Attorney was able to negotiate a plea where the client pled to 3rd Degree Felony Fleeing to Elude, and 1st Degree Misdemeanor Obstruction of Justice. Pursuant to plea negotiations the State Attorney’s Office did not recommend detention. Attorney strategically transferred the case to the client’s home county where he could work with a Department of Juvenile Justice representative familiar with the client. After speaking with the DJJ representative, the client was recommended to perform probation only.
