Mike Brown had a client who was indicted for Burglary of a Habitation with intent to commit Murder, enhanced. State’s offer was 5 years. Client held out for a plea to time served for criminal trespass. Complaining witness was final witness and flaked out, leaving Judge Puryear to say, “…tomorrow I’m bringing flea powder! I haven’t seen a dog case like this in 25 years!” State dismissed; client pled guilty to time served for criminal trespass, just as he had requested, 13 months ago.
