Client Arrested For Malicious Mischief And Vandalism
In this Oakland case arising out of an anti-police brutality protest, our client was arrested for a misdemeanor violation of California Penal Code Section 594(a) – vandalism for damaging a cop car. After aggressive negotiations with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office and the presentation of an extensive mitigation case, charges were reduced to a misdemeanor violation of Penal Code Section 415 – disturbing the peace - and entry of judgment was deferred for 2 years pending client's completion of community service work and sustaining no new arrests. Charges will be dismissed if client remains in full compliance.
