A difficult case. Client wants to attend law school and become a lawyer but allegedly committed petty theft at numerous stores, fled from the police when they tried to apprehend her, committed battery against a store clerk, and also allegedly gave a false name to a police officer. Lengthy negotiating with the District Attorney resulted in a plea to count 1 only. All other counts were dismissed and client has a chance of applying to law school and then maybe getting into the Bar. A plea to any other count would have made her application to the Bar even more difficult. Now she at least has a chance to join a profession that she wants to be in. Expungement after successful completion of her probation will also be available.
