Bench Plea. Had wife present to testify to explain why he was late getting back from barber (actually pretty good reason, but it’s hard to argue that it isn’t “willful” when it’s community control and you’re an hour late; burden is on client to NOT mess up community control. Did a bench plea and I explained what happened. Judge Chase offered to modify probation 364 days jail with 217 days credit on CF18-1483 and 196 cays credit on CF19-3977, terminates the instant he is released from the jail (so effectively terminated probation). Had already discussed what we wanted with client and very happy with this result as client scored approximately 36 months prison (with credit as above), though this was an artifact of the scoresheet. Very good result for client!
