State v. Ms. M (DMC No. 4984)

THREATS/PROBATION VIOLATION REDUCED to DISORDERLY CONDUCT with 10 DAYS JAIL – State v. Ms. M. (DMC No. 4984) (Surprise City Court CR03-01164): Ms. M. was in court pleading guilty to an assault charge when she walked by the person she had gotten into a fight with (the alleged victim) and stated “are you happy”.  Immediately the victim stated “good, you are going to get some more”, and told Deputies in the court that she had been threatened.  Ms. M. was arrested and charged with threats, and a petition to violate probation was filed.  We were able to interview all witnesses, and show that nobody actually heard any threats being made, and the Prosecutor agreed to amend the charge down to a simple “disorderly conduct”, and dismiss the petition to violate probation.  Ms. M. was facing a possibility of up to 1 year in jail on both incidents.
