Case: First-Degree Controlled Substance Sale
Attorney: Mike Brandt
Result: Mike was retained to assist a client charged with First-Degree Controlled Substance in Douglas County. Based upon his client’s record, Mike’s client was looking at a sentence of 75 months in prison. However, based upon legal issues that Mike raised and the steps Mike’s client took to rehabilitate himself, Mike was able to negotiate a downward dispositional departure and his client was able to avoid prison time. Instead of prison, the client was placed on probation for 10 years.
In addition to this charge, Mike was also successful in getting his client discharged from probation on 2 felonies and also succeeded in persuading a prosecutor to dismiss another drug case based upon his client’s plea to the First Degree charge.
