Michael’s client was charged with Kidnapping, Torture, Domestic Violence and Witness Intimidation following a weekend long domestic violence incident. The client was facing life in prison. After taking the case over from another lawyer, Michael issued subpoenas to doctors that were distributing large quantities of prescription drugs to both our client and the victim. Additional subpoenas revealed a long history of drug abuse and mental health issues by both the client and victim. A 6 year prison offer was made by the District Attorney days before trial. After presenting a complete mitigation package during a meeting with the trial deputy and his supervising District Attorney, a probation offer was extended that included time served and 6 months in an inpatient drug rehabilitation program.
