What will happen after being accused of purse snatching? 1 Answers as of July 12, 2011

My boyfriend was recently arrested for purse snatching. His bond is set at $20,000. He has a clean record and has never been in trouble before. What are the chances of him not serving any time when he goes to court?

This will depend upon the specific details of the case against him and there is no hard and fast rule in this situation. Having a previously clean criminal record may certainly present an advantage in terms of his ability to qualify for probation or another diversion program but this is something that you and he should discuss with an experienced criminal defense attorney in your local area to determine.
