In October 2013, a 26-year-old male was charged with four serious felonies. His first attorney, appointed by the court, wanted the defendant to plead guilty, virtually guaranteeing a substantial prison sentence. The young man’s mother, searched for a lawyer to defend her son, but every criminal defense attorney she called brushed her off. Then she called Criminal Attorney Carl Jordan who discussed the case from a perspective of going to trial and presenting an aggressive defense. Mr. Jordan was hired to represent the defendant.
A waiver of trial by jury was signed and filed. As a result of Attorney Jordan’s defense, on August 15, 2014, all the felony charges were dismissed and the defendant was charged with one misdemeanor and sentenced to one year of probation.
