Case 139

Client was arrested and charged with felon in possession of a firearm in Galveston County. Because of prior prison sentences, the client’s punishment range was 25 years to life in prison. We were hired within six weeks of the trial date. After our initial investigation and our first court appearance, the state offered our client 4 years in prison. We rejected the offer and set the case for trial. Through creative tactics and intense investigation, we were able to show the state a multitude of problems with their case. On trial day, the state abandoned the prior conviction enhancements and reduced their offer to 2 years in prison.
