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.

    I hired Gerald Miller law to handle a very difficult case they went above and beyond my greatest expectations. Brodie Hacken listened to my concerns always reached out to see how I was doing then we sat down in cities couple times face to face and established a game plan how to proceed and I couldn't be happier with the outcome from this Law Firm. Highly recommended if I had a son or daughter in big trouble id trust my own children with Brodie Hacken do yourself a huge favor dont be cheap you'll pay way more later and probably never regain your Liberties and true freedom back ever again if you don't just call Gerald Miller these guys know how handle felony cases....

    Tyler Dahlen at Gerald Miller is amazing. My case took some time and Tyler briefed me every step of the way, called me, kept me from losing my mind and was genuinely supportive. Tyler was able to find a way to present my case which resulted in a much better outcome than if I had taken this journey alone. I recommend Gerald Miller and specifically Tyler to anyone who finds themselves needing these services.
