From attempted murder to simple assault.

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Criminal Attorney David Wooten managed to turn a criminal case on its head in Howard County. Attorney Wooten’s client was held for 34 days pending charges for attempted murder, allegedly strangling his girlfriend to unconsciousness. Through diligent investigation and negotiation, however, Mr. Wooten worked out an amazing plea deal, whereby his client pled guilty to simple assault, and the client was sentenced to a straight probationary term.  A straight probationary term means that his client was not even officially sentenced to the 34 days that he had already served, which is extremely important for a non-citizen who faces potential deportation as a result of a criminal conviction.
