Felony Solicitation Charge Reduced to a Gross Misdemeanor
Nicole’s client was charged with Electronic Solicitation of a Child after sending a nude photograph to a minor. Her client had never been in this kind of trouble before and was nervous about facing felony charges for the first time in his life. Nicole helped him through the process and encouraged him to take some proactive steps to work toward a resolution that would allow him to avoid having a felony on his record. Nicole and her client gathered documents to send to the prosecutor to eventually convince the prosecutor to amend the charges to a less serious, non-felony level offense. Nicole was also able to negotiate no further jail time and probation for only one year. Nicole and her client’s proactive steps helped her client maintain his employment, keep a felony off his record, and stay out of jail.
