Jezic’s client was facing 8 1/2 years back-up time for an alleged violation of probation, which was based on his client’s alleged continued involvement in an illegal gang. At the hearing the prosecution presented numerous damning photos and blog postings, as well as expert testimony from a Montgomery County gang expert/detective to show that Jezic’s client was still in an illegal gang.
Jezic was able to persuade the Montgomery County Circuit Court judge that the State has not proven that the client was in a gang. In addition, the judge terminated the lengthy probationary period early and released the client from all onerous obligations of highly supervised probation. The client was elated and relieved at the result.
