Felony Shooting reduced to Misdemeanor
A St. Charles County man was charged with unlawful use of a weapon for allegedly firing off 7 shots with an AK-47 during a heated argument. We were able to show that the other man had started the argument, that the shots were warning shots, and that the other man had trespassed on our client’s property at the time of the alleged shooting. As a result, the prosecution agreed to amend the charge to a misdemeanor with probation. So long as our client completes probation, he will not receive a conviction on his record.
