Oakland Client Charged with Disobeying an Officer and Resisting Resist- Charges have been dismissed.

April 2019

In an Oakland case in Alameda County Superior Court, our client was charged with a
violation of Vehicle Code Section 2800(a) – disobeying an officer, a violation of Vehicle
Code Section 12500(a) – unlicensed driver, a violation of Vehicle Code Section 23103(a)
– reckless driving and a violation of Penal Code Section 148(a)(1) – resisting arrest.
Aggressive negotiations with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office and a strong
mitigation case led to a disposition of a deferred entry of judgment on a lesser charge of
Vehicle Code Section 23103(a) – reckless driving. All other charges were dismissed and
our client is eligible for a full dismissal of the entire case in one year. Client has since
completed his deferred entry of judgment and all charges have now been dismissed.
