Reduced ARS 13-1406 Sexual Assault & ARS 13-1904 Armed Robbery

Drew had two cases and was facing up to 35 years in prison.  He was only 19 years old at the time.  He was no saint, but the charges against him were exaggerated. The sexual assault happened after a night of drinking with his friend. He crashed on his friend’s couch where his friend’s female roommate also passed out from a long night of drinking. He approached the woman and started making out with her. Eventually it progressed to sex.  She never said a word to him and he thought it was consensual. After he left in the morning she told her roommate he raped her.  Burges took on the case and got Drew evaluated by a doctor.  He pressed the prosecutor to reduce his sentence and got it all the way down to 6.5 years.
