Written by admin-1 on . Posted in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Theft Crimes

We recently had success in a case in which our client was facing two felony cases. He was at risk for a felony conviction for car theft while receiving stolen property. On top of that, he was facing a conviction for car theft and owning a chop shop. He has 8 counts and 8 bail out enhancements for car theft and owning a chop shop which can add to the penalties for this case. Our client was at risk of a ten year prison sentence for these cases. Originally, he had a public defender in his case but then he approached our firm for help. When being represented by the public defender the best offer presented to him was a prison sentence of 16 months. After teaming up with a
Sacramento criminal defense attorney from our firm, he received a much more favorable result. We were able to get a work project only penalty for our client. He avoided jail and prison time completely and was only given minimum fines and probation as a punishment for his two cases.
