- Logan

Charged with Class B Possession of Marijuana.

While getting to know David, the attorney learned that the typical first offender programs and deferred adjudication probations were not going to work in this case.  After exhausting efforts to get the case dismissed, the attorney negotiated a plea bargain that allowed the client to get time served on his sentence for the charge.  The client received credit for the time he spent in jail when he was first arrested.  As a result, the client never had to go back to jail to dispose of the case and he didn’t have to do any probation either.
