Van Nuys Superior Court - Client Resentenced After Receiving One Year in Jail
Our client was represented by another attorney and had already pleaded guilty on two criminal cases. They received a one year sentence in the Los Angeles County jail. Due to the amount of time they were sentenced, it made their case an aggravated felony offense for the INS and our client was facing deportation.
At this point, our client retained our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers. We began an aggressive legal strategy by having our client complete a substantial drug rehabilitation program. Afterwards, our lawyers show the prosecutor the weaknesses in their case and he was resentenced to no jail time.
