REDUCED | 2 COUNTS SEX ASSAULT/KIDNAPPING REDUCED to ATTEMPT with 3.75 YEARS in PRISON – State v. Mr. B. (DMC No. 9995) (Maricopa County Superior Court 2010-139697): Mr. B. was drinking at a party when he went into another room with a young lady. There was a second young lady who was passed out on the bed next to them. He was accused of digitally penetrating the first girl with his finger, before she left the room. It was then alleged that he went over and had sex with the other girl who was unconscious on the bed. Because he was accused of not originally letting the first girl leave immediately, he was also charged with Kidnapping along with Sex Assault regarding both women. He was originally facing 20 to 48 years in prison (day for day), and we were able to present mitigation regarding Mr. B.’s addiction to alcohol. We eventually secured a sentence to 3.75 years “soft” in prison, in which Mr. B. was released after 2 years and 11 months.
