Charge: Trafficking Tobacco in Jail, a Class D Misdemeanor

Maximum Penalty: 364 days in jail and a $2,000.00 fine

Summary: Our client was found with tobacco products under his mattress while in county jail.  I negotiated a plea agreement for 7 days jail, concurrent with his current sentence. He would do no extra time in jail.  The client was released early, two days prior to his plea hearing. He failed to contact us, disappeared and failed to appear at the hearing, not once but three times. No one could find him. The State withdrew their offer and insisted on 30 days jail and a $500.00 fine.   l found him in a Washington County rehab facility 6 months later, long after I was officially released from his case.  The State agreed to offer an unconditional release for a plea by authorization.

Result: Client plead guilty, did not have to physically appear in court, and avoided serving ANY further jail time or paying any fine.  He did not forfeit his place in rehab.  At the Law Office of William T. Bly we don’t quit on you.
