A Cook county defendant charged with Murder received a good plea deal

A group of people gathered at a club for a party. When the party ended, a brawl broke out in the street among a large group. During the fight, shots were fired and one person was killed while another was shot in the leg. The evidence was conflicting as to who had and fired a gun, with several persons being named. However, the person shot in the leg identified the Defendant as the shooter and he was arrested and charged with Murder and other associated crimes. He was facing Life plus 50 years. After 2 years of fighting for our client, we were able to get him a plea to Voluntary Manslaughter with a sentence of 20 years on probation (no prison time).
