Criminal Damage to Property Charge Amended to Disorderly Conduct
Client charged with criminal damage to property following dispute at their residence with his common-law wife. He is alleged to have damaged the windshield to her vehicle. The couple have four kids together and remain together despite the charges. Before trial, the state agreed to amend the charge to Disorderly Conduct for a $100 fine and 6 months unsupervised probation. Based on my client's desire to put this matter behind him and his wife, and the wife's desire to not cooperate with the prosecution's case, the plea agreement seemed to be in both parties' best interest. My client can now focus on supporting the family and working on his "marriage" with his spouse. He also paid for the repairs to the windshield immediately following the incident.
