People v. J.L.

Defendant charged with misdemeanor battery. He missed his mandatory return to court date in March of 2014 and missed the follow up Judgement on Bond Forfeiture date that followed in April. Defendant was picked up on a warrant in early May and had a return date that Defendant appeared at, but the case was accidentally called in the morning and another warrant was issued!! Defendant needed assistance badly & found Mr. LaScola online. Mr. LaScola took this client to court – had the case motioned back into the courtroom, informed the State of the issues in the case, and convinced the Court to accept the community service letter and dismiss the charge despite our client’s failure to appear his mandatory court date and 2 warrants being issued. Client was discharged and case DISMISSED!!!!
