Blogging Break -- Fun and Games

Update: Client and co-defendant took the plea, so I won't be in trial this week.
Original post:

I'll be out of the office for the rest of the week at a CLE. Until then, occupy yourselves trying to predict the outcome of this situation. Client and brother are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon which carries a possible sentence of 2 to 20 years in prison (must serve 50% of sentence before being eligible for parole). Brother has already had his deferred probation (for a previous aggravated assault deadly weapon case) revoked and been sentenced to 15 years, but he is appealing that decision. (Chances of successful appeal = approximately 1 in 100 million). DA has offered both defendants time served on a misdemeanor assault. The deal is only good if both defendants agree to take it, because the DA says he's only offering it to spare his victim from having to testify again after already testifying at the revocation hearing. (Insert requisite Nancy Grace outrage at plea bargain offer here.) Both cases are set for trial on Monday. Will they take the deal? Will they roll the dice at trial? Will I be able to blog on Monday? Make your predictions now, and I'll tell you how you did when I return next week!

Happy Mother's Day!

Just an ignant student here, but I would guess that revoked brother will roll dice cause he probably feels like he has less to lose, even though that is illogical.

Welcome back! Favorable deal, I hope?

Very favorable. Time served on a misdemeanor when charge was a second degree felony.

Good job! That's almost as good as a not guilty!
