Houston Criminal Trial Lawyer Gets Felony Habitual Status Reduced to State Jail Felony! Instead of Receiving 25 Years to Life on a Retaliation Case, His Client Received Less than 1 Year in the State Jail on an Attempted Retaliation


Retaliation (Keak da Sneak album)Houston Criminal Lawyer Jim Sullivan represented a man facing 25 years to Life in prison as a habitual felon on the charge of Retaliation, a 3rd degree felony.  After being arrested for a drug charge, he allegedly threatened to come after the officer upon release from jail.  Jim Sullivan thoroughly investigated the crime scene and attempted to locate witnesses.  As the prosecutor was only offering a lengthy prison sentence, Jim Sullivan suggested his client ought to go to trial.  On the trial setting, Sullivan persuaded the prosecutor to reduce the case to Attempted Retaliation, a state jail felony, and offer his client 9 months in the state jail.  His client ended up receiving less than a year in jail when he was first facing 25 yrs to Life in the Texas Department of Corrections.
