Mike’s Client Avoids a Conviction in Anoka County Felony
Date: July 2020
Case: Criminal Damage to Property
Attorney: Michael Brandt
Result: Mike’s client was charged with 1st Degree Criminal Damage to Property in Anoka County. The incident involved damage to a squad car and was an anomaly that was fueled by alcohol. Before his client was charged, Mike had his client take several proactive steps which assisted him negotiating a favorable resolution for his client. Specifically Mike convinced the prosecutor to allow Mike’s client to enter Anoka’s Felony Diversion Program, which means that Mike’s client pled guilty, but the Court does not accept the plea as long as the client follows certain conditions for the next two years. If the client successfully completes the Diversion Program, the charges will be dismissed.
