FELONY INJURY TO A CHILD
Criminal Defense Case Study #1
Matter: Felony Injury to a Child
Summary: Our client was in his late twenties when he came to our offices for a consultation. This was a good man who had exercised some poor judgment in disciplining a minor child. The child was the son of his former girlfriend, and the poor judgment took place in a rural Texas County. Neither our client, his former girlfriend nor the boy in question were from that jurisdiction. Nevertheless, the authorities were asking for a stiff sentence and penitentiary time.
Outcome: After extended negotiations with the District Attorney, members of his investigative staff, and ultimately with the complainant's family, we agreed on a deferred adjudication probation, counseling, restitution, and no jail or pen time. Provided our client successfully navigates the terms and conditions of his probation, the case will be dismissed and he will not have a felony conviction on his record.
Highlights: Patiently waiting and advocating for a just and fair result, and seeing that unfold in court.
References: Our client and his father.
Testimonial (from client's father):
I can't thank you enough for all your efforts on behalf of my son. It was truly a remarkable time in my life; one that I will never forget. As I recall the events and the time in the court room, it is clear to me that my son had not only the best lawyer in the room for the entire time, but a truly outstanding and caring person representing him. You taught me a lot.
Give my best wishes to your family for me and tell them that the time I took you away from them resulted in a huge reward for my family today. I can never replace that time away from your family. It may be a small comfort to them to know how much you meant to my family. May God continue to bless you all!
