Santa Clarita Courthouse Case Results

BRANDISHING A WEAPON, California Penal Code 417 pc
CHARGES REDUCED AND NO JAIL TIME – Santa Clarita Courthouse, Los Angeles
An 18 year old with no priors was charged with misdemeanor violation of Penal Code section 417 pc, for Exhibiting a Replica Firearm for pointing an air soft gun at another vehicle on the 5 freeway. Other lawyers thought the case would be dropped. The family retained me and I immediately went to work researching alternative charges to avoid the 30 days in jail and built a case in mitigation. At the arraignment he was offered two misdemeanors, 30 days in jail and 30 days of community labor. I was prepared with an alternative Los Angeles County Code section that did not require the 30 days of jail and met with the Supervising District Attorney. I presented the alternative charge and the case in mitigation I worked up. I successfully negotiated the reduced charge and no jail time. The alternative code section also looks better on his record than a Penal Code violation and is eligible to be further reduced to an infraction and dismissed.
