Case Amended and Dismissal Likely
In Lacey Municipal Court, Casey Arbenz's client was facing an Assault in the 4th Degree - Domestic Violence charge. The charge itself was causing problems with her professional licensing. Mr. Arbenz was quickly able to convince the prosecutor to amend the charge to disorderly conduct - a charge that wouldn't affect the client's professional licensing - and enter a stipulated order of continuance. In other words, the disorderly conduct charge will be dismissed in one year. The client was thrilled at Mr. Arbenz's prompt attention to the serious consequences of the DV charge.
