Re: felony harassment

All of those things are factors in getting the charge reduced. However, that will not happen at trial. Trial is merely a fact determining procedure for the current charge (and any the State/City may add). If you want a reduction, your attorney needs to convince the prosecutor that one is appropriate. Contact me directly if you'd like further assistance.
