Incredible Outcome for Valley Veteran for Gross Discharge of Firearm

Dec 12, 2013

Recently we were retained to represent a client on a Fresno criminal case where he was charged with two felony counts, Gross Discharge of a Firearm (Penal Code section 246.3) and Felony Exhibition or Brandishing of a Firearm (Penal Code section 417(a)(2). The 246.3 Gross Discharge is also a strike under the Three Strikes Law (Penal Code section 1192.7(c)(23). After many months of negotiation and presentation of evidence on behalf of our client we were able to get the case reduced to one count of Gross Discharge of a Firearm as a misdemeanor. In addition, he was able to walk out of court with a low informal probation term of two years, no fines, no jail or community service.

This outcome was critical for our client because he was a veteran and a felony conviction would have cost him his career and his pension. One of the main roles a Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney plays in getting the best possible outcome it to orchestrate the humanization of their client in front of the court and the DA.

You have to know your client and their background. I can't overstate that enough. You have to memorize the details of their life that are going to make the difference to the judge and the District Attorney. If someone deserves a break, you need to make the decision makers want to give that break to them. In addition, you have to work with your client on presenting all the mitigation evidence you can in obtaining the best possible result. We were able to do that for our client in this case and obtained a stellar victory. When your looking for a Fresno Criminal Lawyer, make sure you find one who cares about you as a person and your case.
