Credit for time served
In 2011 Casey Arbenz and Brett Purtzer defended a client charged with 5 counts of first degree child molestation. The client was convicted of 4 of the 5 counts and acquitted of the other. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison. However, during the course of trial, Mr. Arbenz and Mr. Purtzer made numerous objections - as it became apparent the judge was not following the law. The Court of Appeals agreed and reversed our client's case. Today, Mr. Arbenz secured a credit for time served plea agreement for the client. He was very pleased to not have to go back to prison.
