Morristown Criminal Attorney Troy Bowlin Brokers a Judicial Diversion for Client Charged with Murder
Mr. Bowlin’s client faced 15 to 60 years in prison for this charge. His client ended up with 1 year of judicial diversion and not a single day in jail.
The first success Mr. Bowlin achieved was to get his client’s charge reduced. The client’s charge was lessened to one of aggravated assault. This offense involves purposefully inflicting (or threatening to inflict) serious physical harm with a deadly weapon. While this could mean much lighter penalties, it still was a serious charge. This crime is a Class C felony, and it carries the penalty of 3 to 15 years of prison and a damaging criminal record. The client ended up serving no time in prison, however.
Mr. Bowlin built and presented a strong case, which got his client judicial diversion for 1 year. This result is only available to those being charged with their first offense. There will be no incarceration, and instead the client will be under probation. After the client has completed the year of judicial diversion, the charge will be dismissed and expunged. Expunging a criminal record is when the crime is wiped clean from public view. It can no longer shadow one’s every housing, job, or loan application. This resounding success means that the client stays out of jail and has a future undimmed by a felony conviction.
