Mr. Pariente’s client was arrested after breaking into a house with a gun, pistol-whipping two of the people in the house in front of five eyewitnesses, kidnapping one of the residents at gunpoint, and taking her to his vehicle where he allegedly placed the gun in her mouth and played Russian roulette. If convicted, Mr. Pariente’s client would have received a minimum of 10 years to life in prison. The evidence against Mr. Pariente’s client was overwhelming, to say the least. But that didn’t stop Mr. Pariente. Mr. Pariente was able to convince the prosecutor and judge to agree to a low bond resulting in his client’s immediate release from custody. After getting his client out of jail, Mr. Pariente waged an all-out battle for his client resulting in a great deal for his client – all the charges were reduced to misdemeanor charges with three years of probation and absolutely no jail or prison time.
