Licensed professional, charged with grand larceny, gets deal to have criminal charges dropped

2014

Our client, a licensed professional with a business in New York City, was arrested for grand larceny, a class E felony. We defended our client at the arraignment and secured a release without bail and without pretrial monitoring. Any felony conviction and, possibly, even a misdemeanor conviction could have resulted in a permanent loss of the license. Our client contacted us for help. In reviewing the police reports and criminal court complaint, we discussed possible ways to defend the case at trial but our client needed a way to get it resolved without a trial if possible. After negotiations with the district attorney, we successfully obtained an offer that avoided a felony conviction, avoided a misdemeanor conviction, and avoided jail and probation as long as our client was willing to plead guilty to a non-criminal violation.
