I asked this question before and did not receive a good answer.
My friend was convicted of 2 agg assaults.
2 aggravated assaults that occured on 1 day and the prosecution provided 0 physical evidence and only contradicting witness testimony. An on another day, 1 charge of Cr. Attempt 1st degree murder (which was dropped) in which there was some crime scene evidence (shell casings).
He had a jury trial and was found guilty of 2 agg assauts. My question is: since he has served 13 months while waiting for trial is it possible for him to receive probation? The alleged victims are relatives and no one was injured during the alleged incident and they have requested that he receive a minimum sentence. He had just graduated from college 1 month prior to this incident.
