Domestic violence theft charges dismissed (Manhattan)
Lance’s client was
arrested for allegedly taking property that had belonged to our client’s
former domestic partner. Traditionally, domestic violence cases were thought
of as involving violence but this has been changing. Even property crimes,
when committed against a romantic partner, may end up being heard in a
domestic violence courtroom as this case was. Our
client contacted us for help in working out the case so as there is no criminal record.
We successfully obtained a dismissal of the entire case after we noticed
the prosecutor made a procedural error.
