Client's sentence is substantially reduced and will be wiped clean upon satisfactory completion of the probationary term

Client(s) McMillen, Tiffany

A SWAT team served a search warrant at the home of Ms. McMillan, her boyfriend, 3 children, and mother. The officers recovered many controlled pharmaceutical substances, among other illegal items. The target of the warrant was the boyfriend, but the State proceeded to charge Ms. McMillan with felony possession of Morphine (a class 2 substance) and Alprazolam (Xanax) (a class 4 substance).

Ms. McMillan faced up to 3 years in prison on each possession charge. After a lengthy fact investigation, David Culberg and Clark Brinker of the Chicago office were able to convince the prosecutors to drop the Morphine charge and to let Ms. McMillan accept "410 probation" (the lowest form of probation) on the Xanax charge. The disposition does not officially count as a criminal conviction and is wiped clean upon satisfactory completion of the probationary term. Ms. McMillan was very pleased with the outcome and very appreciative of her lawyers' efforts, and is ready to move on with her life.
