Client gets reduced sentence!by Josh Jones on 01/16/14
I was in Jefferson County Circuit Court today on a client's 9 count indictment including Theft of Property, Robbery and Receiving Stolen Property. The client's case was set for a pre-trial hearing but I was able to work out a satisfactory plea agreement with the prosecutor. Through my research and investigation of the case I found out that one of the witnesses was deceased. I also conducted research on one of the charges (Possession of Burglar's Tools) and found out that the item they charged as a "burglar's tools" did not qualify. I presented all of this information to the Deputy District Attorney who agreed to drop those two charges along with one more.
