Client Avoids Felony Charge, Conviction in Stabbing
Dane County law enforcement arrested a Chirafisi & Verhoff client on felony charges of reckless endangerment of safety during a disturbance in which the client, who was alleged to be high on drugs at the time, stabbed his roommate. The client was taken into custody, but Attorney Verhoff was able to discuss the matter with prosecutors before formal charges were filed. After our lawyer met with the District Attorney's Office and provided officials with additional information about the client and the situation, prosecutors agreed to file misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct while armed and criminal damage to property. Prosecutors then agreed have the client participate in a deferred prosecution agreement, which will result in a dismissal of all charges upon the client's completion of the program.
