Murder Charges Reduced to Manslaughter

Client was charged with Murder in the Second Degree and Armed Criminal Action after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend at a party in front of multiple eyewitnesses. The initial offer was 25 years in prison. After a vigorous investigation, we were able to persuade the prosecutor to reduce the murder charge to manslaughter and to dismiss the armed criminal action charge altogether. As a result, client will be eligible for parole within the next three years.
