Client Pulls False Fire Alarm, No Criminal Conviction

Authorities contacted our client after he was alleged to have pulled a fire alarm at the UW-Madison Memorial Union.  Police reviewed a surveillance video and spoke with witnesses who identified our client.  Before making a statement to law enforcement, the client contacted Chirafisi & Verhoff.  Our lawyers worked with the police to make sure they did not physically arrest our client.  The client, a recent college graduate, was concerned about how the case would impact his future if convicted of a crime.  Although prosecutors initially filed a misdemeanor criminal charge Attorney Verhoff brokered a deal with prosecutors by which the charge was amended to a non-criminal violation with the legal equivalency of a parking ticket.  Yet another example of a Chirafisi & Verhoff client who avoided a criminal conviction after being charged.
