Grand larceny embezzlement charges dismissed in Queens
Lance’s client was
arrested for stealing thousands of dollars from a former employer who complained
to the NYPD. After the arrest, or client came to see us to discuss options.
The main priority was avoiding
jail and avoiding a felony conviction. In cases like this, our clients face
up to 4 years in
prison and a permanent felony conviction. Felonies can make you forever ineligible
for certain benefits, licenses, and jobs. After several months of litigation
in Queens criminal court, Lance was able to negotiate a deal with the
Queens District Attorney that exceeded our original goals. We resolved
our client’s case with a deal where she would only end up convicted
of disorderly conduct. The penalty was only
community service, not
jail. No criminal record.
