Our client was facing felony charges of graffiti on a Texas school, and we were able to successfully see to it that his charges were reduced to a misdemeanor offense. As a result, they will spend no time in jail or owe any hefty fines; he will only be required to spend the next 3 months on differed probation. A client that receives deferred probation means that they are not facing severe charges, and once their probationary time is up there will be no scores on their record anymore.
