Nicole gets helps client avoid juvenile adjudication and registering as a sex offender, Charges will Eventually be Dismissed
Date: July 2020
Case: 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct
Attorney: Nicole Kettwick
Result: Nicole’s client was charged with 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct. Nicole’s client is a juvenile and was with a friend when an off color joke with the friend’s little brother led to these extremely serious charges. If convicted, Nicole’s client would have been required to register as a sex offender. After Nicole performed a thorough investigation and her client underwent an examination by a psychologist, with positive results, Nicole was able to begin negotiations with the prosecutor. Based off her negotiations, Nicole was able to secure her client’s placement in a Deferred Adjudication Sex Offender Program. This means that Nicole’s client must comply with the conditions of the program or the Court could accept a guilty plea. Upon successful completion of the program, the charges will be dismissed. The eventual dismissal of the client’s case means the client may move forward from this incident and avoid the serious consequences of being adjudicated delinquent and registering as a sex offender.
