Case Date: 9/30/2014 - 9/25/2015
Final Result: No Executed Jail Time
Facts: While serving as a town supervisor, client was accused of improperly destroying ballots following an election for one of the other two supervisor positions. Other town officials pushed to have him removed from office and convicted of the felony charge carrying a maximum penalty of 366 days in prison. Following trial and appeal, attorney Alex Rogosheske convinced the Court to depart from the State's suggestion and sentence the matter as a gross misdemeanor. The departure allowed our client to remain out of jail and retain his status as a town supervisor and non-felon.
