Client was charged with attempted removal of police gun while resisting arrest. Because of Client’s criminal background, he faced 10 years in prison. Attorney Gardner conducted a two-day preliminary hearing, during which she presented helpful eyewitness testimony and cross-examined the involved police officers at length. In addition, through motion practice, she uncovered prior police misconduct. Because of all this, the DA offered the Client an infraction for disturbing the peace with credit for time served. Client received no jail, no fine, and no probation.
