State V. A.D.

County: Hennepin
Original Charge: (F) 2nd Degree Burglary, Felony Theft
Test Result: None
Priors: None
Final Disposition: STAY OF IMPOSITION* on 2nd Degree Burglary, Felony Theft Dismissed

Sentence Imposed:

This was a very serious charge, carrying a very serious term of jail for the client if convicted. Our attorneys were able to negotiate for a Stay of Imposition, and avoid any significant jail time on behalf of the Client. The client was sentenced to only 90 days of executed jail, and was ordered to pay Restitution.
* If a Stay of Imposition is granted, the imposition (or pronouncement) of a prison sentence is delayed to some future date, provided that until that date the offender comply with conditions established by the court. If the offender does comply with those conditions until that date, the case is discharged, and for civil purposes (employment applications, etc.) the offender has a record of a misdemeanor rather than a felony conviction.

    In my own experience with Mr. Kyle dreger, he was incredibly professional and down to earth while simultaneously being comforting and light hearted to work with on my case. He managed to lower a possible several year prison sentence down to a year of house arrest with probation time. I would recommend Mr. Dreger to anyone in need of legal assistance. Mr. Dreger fought for me to ensure I got the best possible outcome from my case

    I have been working with Kyle for almost 2.5 years on my case. We literally had a court appearance in the morning and they told us to be available for when they call us to come in for free trial that's how far I took it because I believe in my case was one that I could win. Kyle put in diligent work all throughout the two and a half years and he called me about an hour before court closed and I thought he was going to tell me what time to show up in the morning for jury trial but it turns out he was calling with good news they were dropping the charges because they I lost two of their credible witnesses. So we appeared an hour later in front of the judge and the prosecuting attorney and the dropped the biggest charge the one that we wanted dropped all along and Kyle is just amazing to work with him so polite and so quick to respond. If you need an attorney I would definitely meet with him get a feel for what his thoughts are and if you like him hire him cuz he shows up and he works hard and he will fight for you no matter what! So if you're ever in need of a good criminal defense attorney definitely look up Kyle!Shannon
