DESPITE SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGE CARRYING MANDATORY PRISON TERM, CLIENT AVOIDS ANY INCARCERATION

In this case, the client was arrested in a sting operation involving the solicitation of a 14-year-old girl online for sex.  The client was originally charged with three felony offenses, one of which included a mandatory minimum of five-years in prison.  Attorney Verhoff realized the prosecution would be able to prove the case if there was a trial.  As such, he immediately went about finding ways to convince the district attorney to dismiss the charge with the mandatory minimum sentence.  Ultimately, he was successful.  The client then entered a plea to the remaining charges and the parties argued to the judge what appropriate sentence should be.  Although the government presented an argument that included a significant period of incarceration, Attorney Verhoff argued that under the totality of the circumstances, a probationary outcome was appropriate and no amount of incarceration was necessary.  The judge agreed.  Although the client was convicted of a felony crime in this case, he was very relieved he was not sent to prison, nor was he ordered to spend any time in jail.
