Attempted Burglary of a Habitation – Houston Criminal Lawyer gets felony case reduced to misdemeanor!


IMG_2922BAttempted Burglary Reduced to Misdemeanor Trespass

Houston Criminal Lawyer James Sullivan gets his client’s 3rd degree felony Attempted Burglary of a Habitation reduced to a class A misdemeanor Trespass of a Habitation without having a trial setting.  His client claimed that he and his friend were only trying to pry open the man’s apartment window because they thought his girlfriend lived there and could not hear them pounding on the front door.  Maybe so, maybe not.  The man who did live there was not amused and called the police.  With his criminal history, the client was relieved to receive a misdemeanor conviction and only 3 months of actual jail time instead of the 2 to 10 years in prison that he had been facing.

Sullivan gets proven results in misdemeanor and felony criminal and juvenile cases in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties. Sullivan was invited to join The National Trial Lawyers association.
