Attempted 1st Degree Murder

K. M. January, 2016

Charge: Attempted 1st Degree Murder, Especially Aggravated Robbery, Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony

Original Offer: 25 years to serve at 100%

Strategy: After hiring an investigator and conducting an exhaustive review of the discovery provided by the State, as well and interviewing dozens of witnesses, we were able to bring into question the “victim’s” claims. In the “victim’s” medical records, we were able to discover that the “victim” told at least three different versions of the event. When it became clear, to the state, that the “victim” was not telling the whole story, we were able to reduce the attempted murder to an aggravated assault and have the remaining charges dismissed.

Outcome: K. M. Plead guilty to Aggravated Assault, 6 years at 30%
