A client facing life in prison will serve only a brief jail sentence and three years of probation after Wallin & Klarich Attorney David Wohl was able to get attempted murder charges dismissed.
Our client was accused of running over a pedestrian with her car in Riverside, Calif. She admitted to running over the pedestrian, stating that she thought the pedestrian was a woman who was having an affair with her husband.
Attorney Wohl investigated the case thoroughly. He recommended our client take a psychological evaluation with an experienced psychologist. The results of the evaluation helped prove that at the time of the incident, our client lacked the criminal intent necessary to convict her of attempted murder.
Using this information, Attorney Wohl convinced prosecutors to reduce the charge to the lesser crime of assault. Assault carries much softer penalties than the crime of attempted murder.
Our client agreed to plead guilty to assault charges, and was sentenced to only a short time in county jail and probation for three years.
“Our client never had the intent necessary to convict her of attempted murder, and we made sure that prosecutors recognized this. This is an outstanding result for our client, who will no longer have the possibility of spending the rest of her life in prison hanging over her head,” Attorney Wohl said.
