In P. v. S.L., the defendants, husband and wife, were charged with submitting false documents to a governmental agency on behalf of a security company that they owned. Those documents were allegedly presented in furtherance of a worker’s compensation fraud scheme which eventually cost the agency over $200,000. Each defendant was facing a state prison sentence for that purported conduct. Through extended negotiations with the prosecution, Attorney Dudley secured an offer under which the district attorney would dismiss all charges against both of his clients individually in exchange for a felony plea by the company and partial restitution.
