Not guilty of all charges.

“I admitted to the things that I did wrong, or in other words, the laws that I did violate and was still found not guilty of all 5 charges. 2 felonies and 3 misdemeanors. I got my job back and 13 months of backpay for the entire time I was not able to work. He is a natural and a boss at what he does. He always seems comfortable no matter how-bad it sounded to me. I thought he was over confident at one point but he proved me wrong by a long shot. I can’t thank him enough for getting me my job back. He literally made a miracle happen.”
