Nicole’s Juvenile Client Avoids Felony Conviction
Date: February 2021
Case: Juvenile Felony Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Felony Damage to Property
Attorney: Nicole A. Kettwick
Result: After a joyriding incident with someone else’s car turned into the car exploding, Nicole’s client faced two felony charges in juvenile court. Nicole worked with the prosecutor to reach an agreement called a stay of adjudication, which meant that her client pled guilty to one count, but the Court did not convict her client and instead placed him on probation. Instead, after successful completion of one year of probation, the remaining charge against her client will be dismissed. This resolution allowed her client to avoid a conviction and juvenile detention altogether.
