Nicole helps client avoid conviction and jail time on drug crime charges
Charges: Third Degree Possession of Controlled Substance, Two Counts of Fifth Degree Possession of Controlled Substance in Hennepin County
Result: Nicole achieved her client’s goals of avoiding not only jail time, but a conviction by convincing the prosecutor to dismiss the Third Degree Possession charge and agree to a stay of adjudication on the two Fifth Degree charges. This means that while Nicole’s client pled guilty to the remaining two charges, the judge did not accept the pleas and instead placed the client on probation. Upon successful completion of probation, the charges will be dismissed.
