Our client was charged with damaging and stealing the property of a neighbor. We were able to demonstrate to the prosecutor that he did not intend any theft or damage, and that restoring the property and dismissing the charges was an appropriate outcome.
Our client had two convictions for felony driving while impaired, which in Minnesota typically always results in a prison sentence. He got a probation violation on the newest case; the prosecutor asked the judge to execute his sentence and send our client to prison. Through extensive discovery litigation and cross-examination of the probation agent, we were able to show that our client's violation was minimal and that he was better served on probation. The judge agreed with us and released our client in just a few days from the hearing.
