Office Conference Hearing Granted for Our client Charged with Violations of Penal Code Section 647(f), 148(a)(1), and 470(b)! Successfully Completed Office Hearing Requirements! No Filing! No Jail! No Criminal Charges!

Our office was recently retained to represent a client involved in an incident that resulted in a citation for violations of Penal Code section 647(f), “Drunk in Public”, 148(a)(1), “Resisting Arrest”, and 470(b), “Possession of False ID”!

Our client, only 19 years old, is currently attending a university, was involved in extracurricular activities and had just suffered the unexpected loss of his older brother. Our office provided documentation showing our client’s good character, no prior law enforcement contact and proof of his effort to heal from this tragedy by seeing a family therapist and attending Alcoholic Anonymous to learn to remain sober. Through a mitigation package, we showed that this incident was isolated aberrant behavior that stemmed from the recent events in his life.

The Prosecution agreed to grant our client an office conference hearing for this matter. At the office conference hearing our client was provided an opportunity to explain his behavior and assure the hearing officer that this behavior will not occur again. After speaking to our client at great length, the hearing officer provided our client with the opportunity to write an apology letter to the officer involved in the incident and continue to attend therapy. If our client completed these requirements, the hearing officer indicated that formal criminal charges would not be filed.

After three months, our client completed the requests of the hearing officer and criminal charges will not be filed against our client! This is a great result for our client that will allow him to keep his record free of criminal convictions!
