Felonies Reduced to Misdemeanors

About 10 years ago I had a mental break down and began deliberately running my vehicle into other vehicles that were occupied; I did this in part by purposefully going the wrong way on a road. My memory is hazy of the events as a result of my mental illness. I caused substantial property damage but fortunately only minor bodily injury. I was charged with 9 counts of Assault with a deadly weapon as a felony (Penal Code Section 245(a) (1) and pled guilty to three of those counts; I received 6 months in jail and actually spent about 120 days in custody.
Then 10 years later after successfully finishing probation and remaining crime free I sought to have the felonies reduced to misdemeanors (Penal Code Section 17(b) to make my record look better for job purposes and to see if I could get a driver’s license as it was revoked when I pled guilty to those offenses.
I hired Mr. Will Bruzzo to represent me because he had represented me on the original case and I thought he had done a good job for me.
Mr. Bruzzo told me to put together letters from each of the health care professionals who had seen me so I could show uninterrupted and compliant treatment. My Doctors wrote letters indicting I was a good patient and that my symptoms were under control and that I had learned how to manage them and when it was necessary to ask for help.
Mr. Bruzzo then drafted a motion requesting reduction of my felonies to misdemeanors; attached to the motion were letters and other evidence showing my mental health treatment going back some 15 years, to before the incident all the way to the present day. Mr. Bruzzo then argued the motion in front of the Judge and the Judge (after some deliberation) GRANTED my motion and REDUCED THE FELONIES TO MISDEMEANORS! I am very happy with this result as it will make my job search easier and it will give me a chance of getting my driver’s license back. As such I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any criminal matter and Reducing Misdemeanors to Felonies (Penal Code Section 17(b)).
