Case #: 2017-CF-****
Our client was arrested by the Longwood Police Department in Seminole County on 3 counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony. Our client was alleged to have hit three people over the head with a shovel during a domestic disturbance. Our client's initial offer was 3 years in prison in order to avoid a potential maximum sentence of 45 years in prison. Our attorney scheduled depositions of the officers, witnesses, and alleged victims involved. After the depositions, the State made a reduced offer to our client of 3 years of probation instead of prison time. Our client rejected the offer and a second round of depositions was done. After the second round of depositions, the State offered our client a reduced first degree misdemeanor charge of simple battery and a year of probation. After consulting with our attorney, the client again rejected the State's offer. Finally, today the State agreed to drop all felony charges against our client. No felony conviction, no misdemeanor conviction, no probation, not even a fine.
