Client was charged with the Robbery and beating death of the victim and charged with Murder, Felony Murder, Burglary and Aggravated Assault. After months of investigation by the firm and their investigators, John Rife convinced the specialized Cobb County D.A. that the crime did not rise to murder as there was mitigating circumstances. After presenting the evidence to the District Attorney, they agreed and the murder charge was reduced to manslaughter and the remaining charges dismissed. Instead of a life sentence without parole, which is what the Cobb County District Attorney sought, the client received a sentence with the possibility of parole that was not life.
