Harris County Juvenile Attorney James Sullivan Gets His Client’s Aggravated Assault Case Reduced to a Misdemeanor


Houston Juvenile Defense

IMG_2935bHouston Juvenile Attorney James (Jim) Sullivan is board certified in Juvenile Law by the Texas board of legal specialization.  Sullivan regularly defends juveniles in Harris and surrounding counties.

In this case, his client was charged with a serious 2nd degree felony charge of Aggravated Assault.  If convicted, his client could have been sent to the Texas Youth Commission until age 19.  Furthermore, he could not get his juvenile records sealed (i.e. expunged) until age 19, assuming he did not get into any more trouble with the law before then.  Faced with the prospect of his client having a felony juvenile record, the attorney persuaded his client to go to trial to either force the prosecutor to reconsider the merits of his case or to prove his case at trial.  Instead, the prosecutor gave in and agreed to reduce the serious felony case to a class A misdemeanor assault and allow his client to have probation at home.  Two years after his client completes probation, he can petition the court to seal his record.
