Case Result: Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

Had a client charged with a felony for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (facing up to 2 years in state jail), he was on probation for Indecency with a Child, so they attempted to revoke his probation. He was looking at 2-10 years in prison on the revocation.

After arguing and showing proof that he did attempt to register, and that he had been at the same address for months (when they claimed otherwise), his probation was reinstated with 60 days in jail as a condition, and his new felony was reduced to a misdemeanor (Attempted Failure to Register).

He went from a minimum of 2 years in prison with 2 felony convictions, to 60 days in county and 0 felony convictions. Another happy client.
