This morning in court I represented a client charged with an elevated felony charge of Obstructing Justice. This wasn’t my client’s first encounter with the justice system and, in fact, my client had previously served time in prison.
Going in to court this morning we had no idea what the judge’s sentence would be. My client was extremely nervous that prison might be the next stop. I was nervous for my client, too. But the combination of things going on in my client’s life, as well as the number of people who depend on my client on a daily basis, helped ensure a sentence of probation for 3 years.
That’s a very welcome resolution to the case and I’m glad I was able to help make it a reality for my client.
