At the hearing, the Defense argued to the Court the Client’s efforts to complete the terms of his Probation sentence. The Defense Attorney entered into heated negotiations with the Prosecution, Probation Officer and the Judge. The Judge REVOKED the violation charge and TERMINATEDthe Client’s remaining DUI Probation.
