Boyle Case Ends in Plea Bargain
December 7, 2012

The State of Oregon v. Mike Boyle case ended in a plea bargain
this morning in a Deschutes courtroom. Boyle entered an Alford plea
for one misdemeanor charge of identity theft.
According to Cornell University Law School's Legal Information
Institute, an Alford plea "registers a formal claim neither of guilt
nor innocence toward charges brought against a defendant in criminal
court. [It] arrests the full process of criminal trial because the
defendant-typically, only with the court's permission-accepts all
the ramifications of a guilty verdict without first attesting to
having committed the crime."
Boyle had been indicted on multiple felony
counts including unlawful use of a computer and identity theft
which were dropped as a result of the plea. He had initially pleaded
not guilty to the charges in July 2011.
