Aggravated Second Degree Battery - Sentenced to Probation
A young man was interviewed by police after having been stabbed in the shoulder and threatened that if he spoke with police the assailant would "kill him." The victim gave the police Mr. Lawrence's client's name (referred to as Mr. S.) as the person who stabbed and threatened him. A warrant was issued for Mr. S, on which he was arrested 13 months later. Upon his arrest, law enforcement officers discovered what they believed was marijuana in the amount of 34 grams and a dosage unit of Alprazolam (commonly referred to as Xanax). Mr. S was booked on:
- Aggravated Second Degree Battery
- Possession of Marijuana with intent to distribute
- Possession of Schedule IV (Alprazolam)
During his transportation to the Detention Center, law enforcement officers claimed Mr. S told them he stabbed the victim because "he deserved it." Since it could not be confirmed this was after being read his Miranda rights, Mr. Lawrence was able to negotiate a plea offer of a fully suspended sentence and three years of supervised probation.
