I just walked a client into court in Newhall/Santa Clarita. He bench warranted several months ago. His public defender told him he would be going to jail for ninety days. He walk out of court and never went back. He came to my office and hired me on Friday. The case was for driving on a suspended license with a prior and probation violation for the same thing. My client is also not a U.S. citizen cannot get a driver’s license and has already been deported after his last case.
I walked out of court with my client and an offer from the judge for 45 days electronic monitoring or thirty five days in a city jail facility. He is going to decide and go back next month for sentencing.
Sometimes I don’t look forward to Mondays. I think it is going to be a very good week.
