St. Louis Man Avoids Revocation After Three Felony Arrests on Probation


A St. Louis City Man was accused of felony resisting, possession of a firearm, tampering with a motor vehicle, and felony possession of a controlled substance while on felony probation for a weapons offense. If revoked, he faced a seven year sentence. In addition, our client was accused of failing to report and using drugs while on probation. At the hearing, we were able to persuade the judge that the evidence of arrest on the new felony cases was not admissible and that the defendant had made efforts to report. At the conclusion of the hearing the judge found that there was insufficient evidence to revoke defendant and re-instated his probation.
