Work Release Secured in Montgomery County

A client facing substantial jail time was sentenced to work release today, after Attorney Tom Kenny successfully argued the gentleman’s case before a judge in Montgomery County. The client and his family are very happy that he can return to his job.

The client was in court for a Gagnon I hearing on a Violation of Probation (VOP) matter. It was not an easy case to win, since the client was determined by the judge to have both directly and technically violated the terms of his probation.

While judges often add longer sentences for probation violations, Mr. Kenny was able to convince the judge to allow the man out of jail on work release, to which he was already sentenced for a different case in Philadelphia. Mr. Kenny’s ability to wrap this case up during the Gagnon I hearing means that the client also does not have to return to court for a Gagnon II hearing.
