Client evades jail time after plea agreement negotiated

Client(s) Client RA

A small team of Jones Day lawyers recently achieved a terrific result for a pro bono client in a criminal proceeding in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland. The client had been charged with multiple counts of drug possession, vehicular reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest. After challenging the grounds upon which the original detention and search were based, the court recommended a plea agreement that resulted in no jail time for the client. James E. Gauch, Geoffrey S. Irwin, Lee Perla from Jones Day's Washington, D.C. office handled the defense and successful resolution of these charges.
