The Fresno Bee recently reported a case in which a Fresno criminal defense lawyer from our firm helped reach a "packaged plea deal" that allows defendants to get felony probation instead of years in state prison. Attorney Michael J. Aed provided defense for a 21-year-old man who was one of four defendants in the case,according to the Fresno Bee article . The defendants, most of whom were identified as gang members, were facing serious felony charges after an alleged assault outside a nightclub that left two other men severely beaten. The defendants were also charged with drug crimes and weapons-related crimes.
