Nicole’s client found himself facing serious felony criminal charges after a nasty divorce. He was facing prison on two separate felony cases and a few other charges. The State wanted Nicole’s client to go to prison and would not budge. Outside of winning at trial, the only way to keep her client out of prison was for a judge to grant a departure. Nicole filed a motion for a downward departure and submitted a packet of information to the Court on her client. At the sentencing hearing the State and the alleged victim both asked the Judge to send Nicole’s client to prison. In the end, the Court granted Nicole’s motion and her client was not sent to prison.
The outcome of this case is the result of the persistence, dedication and criminal law knowledge that Nicole brings to all of her clients at Brandt Kettwick Defense.
