Post-Conviction Relief! Four Post-Conviction Motions Granted in One Day for Three Different Clients!

Yesterday, Attorney Steve Escovar and Attorney Alexandra Mateus were able to obtain four great post-conviction motion victories for our clients!

Mr. Escovar was able to successfully litigate and negotiate a Penal Code section 1473.7 Motion to Vacate two controlled substance convictions from 1996. Our client pled in 1996 to a Health and Safety Code section 11352(a), “Transportation for Sale of a Controlled Substance,” and Health and Safety Code section 11351, “Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell.” Although these offenses “will” cause our client mandatory and permanent immigration consequences, our client was only advised that immigration consequences “may” result. After negotiating with the prosecution and providing the prosecution with equitable information regarding our client, the prosecution agreed to submit on the motion and dismiss the offenses pursuant to Penal Code section 1385, “in the interests of justice.”

Ms. Mateus was able to successfully litigate a Penal Code section 1203.3 motion to terminate probation early for a client charged with a petty theft offense. Our client was seeking to obtain her real estate license and did not want the open probationary sentence to impact her ability to obtain licensure. After the court terminated probation early, the motion to dismiss the offense pursuant to Penal Code section 1203.4 was also granted by the court. With this result, our client will now have a better opportunity of advancing within her career.

Ms. Mateus was also able to successfully petition for the reduction of another client’s Felony Health and Safety Code section 11350 offense from a felony to a misdemeanor pursuant to Proposition 47! Now, our client is no longer considered a convicted felon!
