Principle in the 1st degree to Premeditated Murder (Habitual Felony Offender)

5 Years of Probation - 10/10/2016

Client was allegedly involved in a drive-by shooting that resulted in a homicide. The client was facing up to life in prison, as a Habitual Felony Offender. By preparing the case for trial, Longwell Lawyers established that the Client did not have knowledge that the shooting was going to occur and that there was reason to doubt the State’s case as to whether the Client had any criminal intent or involvement. As a result, The State agreed only to file a charge of Accessory After the Fact to a Life Felony and offered 5 years of Probation. Our client accepted the offer, rather than face even a remote chance of a conviction and a 30 year prison sentence as a Habitual Felony Offender.
