Results: Burglary Sentence Changed from 8 Years to 5 Years Probation

Another chapter in the book of great results!

My client went to trial on a burglary of a vacant building where he removed $100 worth of copper wire to sell for scrap money to buy synthetic cannabis. Despite being caught red-handed, freely confessing and having his nephew testify against him, he was, shockingly, found guilty by the jury which rejected my sterling defense that he did not form the required intent to steal until after he entered the building. Due to his prior record, the prosecutor requested an extended time of 8 years in prison, with 4 years minimum before parole. But I convinced the Judge to give him 5 years probation.
