Outcome: Pretrial Probation
Description: Client, a 25-year old firefighter and college student, was charged with Possession of a Class A Drug (Heroin), in the Holyoke District Court. On the pretrial court date, we were able to work out a deal where the client was put on pretrial probation for six months, with the condition of drug screens. This deal was perfect for our client, who was on the verge of finishing college and moving out of state. Pretrial probation will result in a dismissal of the charge after the six-month period. Thus, our client will walk away with neither a conviction nor an admission on the offense.
