2 strikes stricken and client given probation
November 15, 2013
With Romero and Pitchess motions pending as well as a motion to suppress evidence and a motion to compel discovery on the eve of trial for a client charged with Possession of Firearm by a Felon, Feldman & Wallach received the discovery at issue and arranged for two prior strike offenses which occurred in the past five years to be stricken for purposes of sentencing.
The end result was the client was granted probation and released from custody that same day. He called the office from a movie theatre that night with his mother. The client’s mother, a government worker, thanked us for returning her son home and called the result a miracle.
