Client was arrested for evading arrest in a vehicle, a state jail felony, and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. Client has temporary protected status because is he is an immigrant from El Salvador. Peek Law Group attempted to get Client a pretrial diversion program, but was denied when the District Attorney’s office decided that evading arrest cases would not be accepted for a pretrial diversion program. However, our attorneys were able to negotiate a straight dismissal of the felony charge, contingent on the Client entering into a misdemeanor pretrial diversion program. Luckily for our Client, the County Attorney let our client into the misdemeanor pretrial diversion program. Client was extremely fortunate to receive such a favorable decision and even the District Attorney’s office final interviewer commented that she could not believe our Client was in the program.
