Felony Stalking Case Reduced
In this case, our client was charged with stalking after he persistently contacted a woman over the course of several months. What made this case particularly difficult was that law enforcement had served the client with a stalking-warning letter, but he continued to call, text, and contact the woman via social media. And he admitted to police he had engaged in this conduct both before and after the warning letter was presented. The client, who had no prior record, was very concerned about a felony conviction. Through negotiations, Attorney Verhoff was able to convince the prosecution to amend the case to a misdemeanor charge for unlawful use of a computerized messaging system. The client was placed on probation but was not ordered to serve any jail time. Although the client was convicted of a criminal offense, the outcome was fantastic given the facts and circumstances.
