Manhattan possession of stolen property charges dismissed

2015

Our client was arrested for being in possession of a stolen Amtrak card that was charged as a misdemeanor but could have been charged as a felony. After being released from the police station with a desk appearance ticket, our client contacted us for help. Our client had a prior conviction for theft and was very worried because conviction in this case could have resulted in a year in jail. After the consultation, we prepared a defense on the ground that the prosecutor would not have sufficient evidence of intent. After fighting in court for a few court dates, we reached a deal that we were able to take in our client’s absence and that avoided trial because our client was attending school in another state. The deal called for the case to be dismissed as long as our client completed some community service.
