Mr. Bruzzo’s extensive experience in local courts in
Orange County can make the difference in the
outcome of your case.
The Client was charged with felony Criminal Terrorist Threats (Penal Code Section 422) out of Orange County Superior Court. This charge carried a maximum of 3 years in state prison; however, the client also had a prior strike offense of residential burglary which doubled his exposure to 6 years. In addition the client had been to state prison on three prior occasions the last one being 5 years in duration. Each state prison prior increased the sentence by one year. As a result the client was looking at a 9-year total sentence. In the very first negotiation session with the District Attorney and the Judge he was able to convince the Judge to reduce the felony terrorist threat to a misdemeanor. By doing this Mr. Bruzzo removed the effect of the prior strike offense and the prison enhancement. In the end the client was sentenced to 20 DAYS, CREDIT TIME SERVED AND RELEASED. Mr. Bruzzo’s familiarity with the court and the personnel who work there made a huge’s case.
