REDUCED | BURGLARY W/ PRIORS – (Maricopa County Superior Court No. 2002-080498CR): Mr. L. had prior convictions in another state for Breaking and Entering. He had served 2 years in prison in that state several years earlier. He was now charged with breaking into a house and stealing money. Due to his extensive prior criminal history, Mr. L. was given a 5 year prison offer through his prior attorney. After terminating the other attorney and hiring us, we were able to show that he had a tragic prior circumstances (due to the fact that he was from Vietnam and was a refugee), and we were able to secure a plea to Trespassing with probation and 9 months of jail.
