Felony Dropped To Assault For a Fine

It’s been a long sojourn for this case.  It began as a felony unlawful sexual contact.  We picked a jury. The complainant then made new disclosures. We were able to prevent the disclosures from being used at the trial.  As a result, the prosecution dismissed the case and recharged it.  Prior to recharging the case, we negotiated a misdemeanor assault with a $300 fine. So, we went from a class B felony, to a class D misdemeanor, without the sex offender registration and with no jail time.  A terrific way to cap off one of the last working days of the year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
