Felony Criminal Threatening and Felony Terrorizing Dismissed!

Yesterday, Amy Robidas, Esq. of ZERILLO LAW, LLC brokered a deal with the York County District Attorney's Office that involved a dismissal of 2 felony charges of Criminal Threatening and Terrorizing in exchange for a plea to a misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct. This is an amazing result on a number of levels.
The Indictment claimed that our client, a Jamaican immigrant, threatened a woman in an Old Orchard Beach nightclub with the knife, as shown above. The mandatory minimum sentence for the felony Criminal Threatening alone is a 1 year mandatory minimum of prison time. Additionally, while felonies are serious for anyone, they are doubly serious for an immigrant, and our client would have been deported if he was convicted of these felonies.
Attorney Robidas and I met with the Assistant District Attorney last week who we told that our client would plead guilty to a Disorderly Conduct if the felonies would all be dismissed. He rejected that idea and we set the case for jury selection. By yesterday morning, Attorney Robidas got the deal done for a misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct and a dismissal of all felonies.
