There are several ways that a criminal case can resolve. At the Law Office of Laura E. Kenney, we will work hard from the time we are hired to get the best possible results for you. If we are not able to negotiate an outcome that is satisfactory then we are prepared to take your case to trial to fight on your behalf in front of a jury of your peers. Possible results are explained in more detail below:
No File – This occurs when the State evaluates the evidence in the case and makes the decision not to proceed with charges. When we are hired early on in the case we can reach out to the prosecutor to begin to argue on your behalf that charges should not be filed.
Nolle Prosse – This occurs when the State drops charges and files a document that they will no longer proceed with the prosecution.
Dismissal – When a defense attorney files a motion to dismiss charges based on a legal deficiency in the State’s case; the Judge may agree and decide to dismiss the charges.
Reduction – Through negotiation and convincing argument the Defense can negotiate with the prosecutor to get charges reduced to lower offenses.
Acquittal – If the State takes the case to trial the burden lies with the them to prove the case to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt. If the jury finds the State did not meet that burden, then they must find the person not guilty. Our job, as the defense team will be to point out the weaknesses in the State’s case and to show the jury where reasonable doubt exists.
