Client was originally charged with possession of marijuana. He had approximately 400 grams of marijuana. While on bond, he was accused by his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend of assaulting them with a weapon. The second arrest caused the probation department to violate his probation. The client was then placed in custody with no bond on the new aggravated assault charge and he probation violation.
Attorney Blevins was able to petition the court to get him a bond on the new charge and probation case. After looking at the State’s evidence in the case, Attorney Blevins was able to close out the client’s probation case with no more jail time and reduce both felony cases to misdemeanors without any jail time.
Client was extremely happy.
