Burglary case knocked down to disorderly conduct (Manhattan)


Our client was arrested with several other people for a burglary of a Manhattan office. After our client was arraigned in criminal court and charged on a criminal court complaint with burglary in the third degree, PL 140.20, we met for the case evaluation. Our client was very upset and ashamed to be in this situation. During the consultation, we discussed defenses in the penal law and ways to mitigate the severity of the situation. Before the Manhattan District Attorney had a chance to indict the case, we were able to negotiate a deal to have the felony charges dropped and replaced by a plea only to disorderly conduct, a non-criminal violation with no criminal record. Instead of jail, our client performed community service.
