Probation in Lancaster, PA Burglary Case

Today I was able to secure a probationary sentence for a client originally charged with burglarizing a home in Lancaster County, PA. Fortunately, I was able to negotiate a plea to the lesser offenses of Criminal Trespass and Simple Assault. The original Burglary charge carried with it an offense gravity score (OGS) of 9 due to the fact that a person was present in the home during the commission of the offense. The Criminal Trespass my client pled to has an OGS of 4. The difference between the offenses when it comes to the sentencing guidelines is enormous. Simply put, this client would have been looking at a state sentence starting at 12 to 24 months with a conviction of an OGS 9 Burglary.
