Second degree robbery worked out with misdemeanor and 60 days jail in Brooklyn

Our client was arrested for allegedly attacking someone in public and forcibly taking their cellphone while being aided by another person. Our client, who suffered from a long history of substance abuse issues, was terrified about the consequences of conviction. Because robbery in the second degree, PL 160.10, is a class C violent offense, our client faced up to 15 years in state prison and a permanent felony conviction. Our client was very concerned about both prison but also the effects of a felony conviction could have for future employment prospects. Our client contacted us for help. After reviewing the police records and criminal complaint, we realized that if the case proceeded to trial, our client could be in a very difficult position. The prosecutor had a strong case. We contacted the prosecutor in Brooklyn and discussed our client’s special circumstances and difficult personal history. We were able to negotiate a deal where our client would only have to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and serve a 60 day jail sentence.
