How M. Byron Morgan Defended A Client On A Felony First Offender Probation
A crime, whether minor or major, is a matter of serious concern. If you’re facing criminal charges, you risk severe penalties, heavy fines, limitations on rights, or even jail time. In addition to this, if convicted, you will have a criminal record, which can result in loss of future job prospects, restrictions in travel, and several other negative consequences.
While it is possible to defend the charges on your own, it is advisable to retain a qualified criminal defense lawyer to achieve the most favorable outcome. Besides, their support can increase your chance of winning your case or minimize penalties.
As a reputed criminal defense lawyer, I determine the best course of action for my clients and remain committed to fighting for the results they deserve.
Since I’ve been in this practice for over three decades, I have handled numerous types of criminal cases and offered each of my client’s accurate representation.
While it is rewarding to seek justice for my clients, in most cases, a definite result cannot be promised. This can often be stressful, especially when the stakes are particularly high.
Recently, I had to defend a client who was on a felony First Offender probation for an unrelated charge in another county. My client drove his girlfriend’s car to pick her up from a place that was less than a mile away from their house. Unfortunately, there was a gun left in the girlfriend’s car, and my client didn’t know about it.
My client had no criminal record in the past, but due to this allegation, there was a possibility he could go to jail if he loses the case and even lose his First Time Offender status.
To prevent this from happening, I had to convince the District Attorney that they couldn’t prove their case. District Attorneys typically don’t believe clients or their witnesses. My client’s girlfriend stated that my client didn’t know the gun was in her car. I had to convince the D.A. that he couldn’t prove that my client did know about the gun.
It took a few weeks, but I’m proud to say that we won the case!
