A Ewing Law Client was charged with Open Murder, Felony Firearms, Assault with Intent to Murder, Felony Firearms, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. Our client was only 15 years old at the time of the incident–but faced life without parole before the adult court.
We were able to use the evidence to show that the facts and circumstances were not as clear cut as the police believed. As a result, the charges were dismissed, and the client was allowed to have his case handled in the juvenile court–which will monitor his progress in high school and rehabilitative programs so that he can move into his adulthood free from incarceration with his entire life ahead of him.
In January of 2020, a Ewing Law client who was charged with Open Murder received a term of probation.
