Outcome: Pretrial Probation - charges to be dismissed after 6 months
Description: Client, a 20-year-old mechanic/musician, was arrested, along with 4 other young guys, for vandalizing a local school. Specifically, they were accused of throwing toilet paper on the trees and school buses as well as locking the school doors with bicycle locks. After being held in jail for six days, we were able to get him released. On the next court date the prosecutor agreed to place my client and the co-defendants on Pretrial Probation (PTP). Under the terms of the PTP, my client must perform 40 hours of community service and not get into trouble for 6 months. So long as he complies the case will be dismissed.
