RESULTS: Pre-trial Diversion was obtained.
This was for our client who was charged with False Report to a Police Officer, a Class A Misdemeanor carrying up to 1 year in county jail & up to a $4,000 fine.
She had never been in trouble before, and had stellar service & work experience.
She simply made this one mistake.
Our criminal defense attorney told the client’s story to the state & secured the opportunity for the client to obtain a case DISMISSAL if she follows a contractual agreement with the state to ensure she doesn’t get a new arrest, maintains sobriety, remains gainfully employed, & generally remains a productive citizen.
This contractual agreement is called Pre-Trial Diversion “PTD” & the program is not automatic entry as the program has strict requirements BUT offers a full DISMISSAL upon completion of the requirements.
The program is a privilege, is not for everyone, & demands quick attention from the attorney because of timelines.
Our client came in scared because this was her first time encountering the police & legal system.
She wanted information, certainty, closure, & a fair result: we delivered her goals by closing the case in 14 days:
- Reviewing the evidence with her
- Counseling her on legal options,
- Obtaining a BETTER result for her than she expected.
Here at Blizzard and Zimmerman, Attorneys, we don’t believe in dilly-dallying around unless delaying an outcome benefits our client.
Blizzard and Zimmerman Attorneys work tirelessly to achieve the greatest possible results for each of our clients and their families. This is one of our successful results, settlements, and verdicts. Every case and client is unique and depends upon the individual facts and circumstances of each case. Clients may or may not obtain the same or similar results in each case.
