Home Invasion Reduced to Misdemeanor Criminal Trespass

A Madison County man was charged with home invasion for allegedly breaking into his girlfriend’s home at night and beating up two men who were present. Just 90 days after the first call to our office, we got the state to reduce the charge to a simple misdemeanor trespass. Our client faced up to 30 years in prison on a class X felony and ultimately walked away with a misdemeanor and some fines, thus allowing him to keep his job and avoid any jail time.
