Murder Charges Reduced, Armed Criminal Action Dismissed

Client charged with Murder 2nd degree, Armed Criminal Action, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon after allegedly shooting a man multiple times during an altercation at a gas station. Client was a prior and persistent offender and faced up to life in prison. As a result of plea negotiations, we were able to persuade the prosecutor to reduce the murder charge to voluntary manslaughter and dismiss the armed criminal action charge. As a result, our client received 20 years will be eligible for parole after ten years instead of facing life in prison.
