Saint Louis, MO (March 30th, 2018) – The People’s Counsel would like to make citizens aware of their ability to negate or reduce criminal charges. Two recent examples include a man being acquitted of drug possession charges and a man receiving a six year sentence instead of a life sentence. Both examples highlight the prowess of The People’s Counsel team and reaffirm their dedication to preventing police and prosecution oversight.
The case of drug possession involved a man in North City St. Louis. A team of SWAT police officers forced their way into a house expecting to find multiple firearms and a considerable amount of narcotics. The officers used a taser on the man twice as he sat in the front room of the house. The search warrant was issued with the intent of finding weapons and a large quantity of drugs, but only a backpack with marijuana was found. During trial the truth came out. The jury discovered that the defendant was only a guest in the residence that was raided and found him to be not guilty.
The second case was a man from Alton, Illinois who was in jeopardy of serving a life sentence for 1st degree murder. He allegedly shot someone in the torso three times. The defense filed multiple motions and underwent a lengthy case investigation, ultimately leading the prosecution to doubt the possibility of a successful trial. Instead, the man was offered a vastly reduced charge: the minimum sentence of six years.
The People’s Counsel is only announcing their recent success so those accused of crimes know there is a an experienced and trustworthy law firm that can stand up to prosecutors and police. The firm even offers free consultations and clients are privy to complete explanations of the entire legal process. Those accused of serious crimes should consider The People’s Counsel for justice.
