Disorderly Conduct Dismissed in Dane County
The McFarland Police Department arrested our client after an argument with her husband. Before formal criminal charges were filed, Attorney Verhoff met with the prosecution to present our client’s version of the events. Based on his presentation, the District Attorney agreed not to file a criminal charge against our client. Instead, the District Attorney agreed to file a non-criminal, ordinance violation (the legal equivalent of a traffic citation). Attorney Verhoff then struck a deal in which the government agreed to dismiss the charge once the client provided proof of alcohol treatment. After providing proof of the treatment, the District Attorney filed a stipulation to dismiss the case – meaning she can honestly answer that she has never been convicted of anything related to this arrest.
