DISMISSED | Felony Criminal Damage – (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 2002097364CR): Mr. H. was charged with Criminal Damage after allegedly driving on a dirt road in the middle of the desert and striking a Palo Verde tree. This particular tree was smack in the middle of the dirt road, and the road split and went around each side of the tree. Because police believed he was intoxicated at the time, and he had a prior felony conviction, they charged him with Felony Criminal Damage. Even though his public defender had plead him to a couple of years in prison based on this charge, we were able to withdraw the plea, do an extensive investigation and have the charges dismissed entirely by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
