Lansing criminal defense lawyer Tiffany DeBruin recently assisted a 22-year-old man when some very serious charges put his freedom and his future in jeopardy. The man faced numerous felony and misdemeanor level offenses including home invasion, 2nd degree, assault by strangulation, and assault and battery, which if convicted, exposed him to several years behind bars. The young man, wanting to avoid such a drastic result, turned to DeBruin Law to review his available options.
With a strong desire to preserve her client’s freedom, attorney DeBruin immediately began working towards achieving the best possible result. This led to a meeting with the prosecution where attorney DeBruin effectively pointed out some significant weaknesses in the state’s case. By utilizing her skill and experience, she successfully negotiated for her client to plead no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct that required probation in lieu of any jail time. Furthermore, after successfully completing his probation, her client’s conviction would never enter on his record, allowing him to easily move on with his life with his freedom and criminal record intact.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
