Felony Evading Reduced to Misdemeanor
Some people falsely believe that if law enforcement is behind them, they simply need to get away. But the hard truth is that the best way to practically deal with the criminal justice system is to find and employ an experienced criminal defense attorney. Not long ago, a man was charged with felony-level evading after a high-speed chase. This left him wide open to significant criminal penalties, including jail time and a strike. Attorney Silver saw the opportunity to help this client and after convincing him to undergo 90 days of in-patient alcohol treatment, he negotiated to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor and spared his client from time behind bars.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
