Felonies Reduced to Misdemeanors
COBB COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT, GEORGIA: In a case that was in the papers last year, our client was charged with three counts of false imprisonment (Official Code of Georgia §16-5-41) and three counts of pointing a gun at another person (Official Code of Georgia §16-11-102). For the felonies, they were facing up to 30 years in prison and $300,000 dollars in fines. We got to work, even during the judicial emergency and slowdown due to COVID-19, and immediately filed the appropriate motions to challenge the investigation, arrest and evidence. We were ready to go to the mat for our client and take the case to trial in need be.
In the end, our client accepted a plea deal to misdemeanor simple assault (Official Code of Georgia §16-5-20) with no fine and no jail time. They are eligible for their probation sentence to end in one year with NO CONVICTION on their record.
