attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a young man charged with a serious felony offense known as “fleeing or attempting to elude police”, 75 Pa.C.S.A. 3733. Our client was only twenty years old, and he was extremely worried about having a felony on his record for the rest of his life. attarney McAllister was able to successfuly negotiate with the district attarneys office to having the grading of this offense lowered from a “felony” to a “misdemeanor” as part of a plea deal. Eight (8) other summary offenses that our client was facing were also dropped as part of this plea deal.
In then end, our client did have to end up pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge of “fleeing or attempting to elude police” under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 3733. However, he was extremely grateful that he did not end up with a felony on his record. In some criminal cases, it is much better to work out a plea deal rather than risk a much more serious conviction by going to a trial. Our client recognized the risks in this instance, and he made a good choice by taking the deal negotiated by attarney McAllister.
