Eric Bain helps client avoid jail time on failure to register as a predatory offender charge
Charge: Failure to Register as Predatory Offender
Attorney: Eric W.M. Bain
Date: September 2019
Result: Eric’s client was charged in Ramsey County for a second-time failure to register as a predatory offender, which carries a presumptive minimum sentence of two years in prison. However, Eric negotiated an agreement with the prosecutor for a dispositional departure and successfully argued to the judge for no additional jail time, with three years of probation instead. This was incredibly important for Eric’s client, who had recently secured a great, steady new job.
