Possession of stolen property case dismissed in Brooklyn
Lance’s client was
arrested for allegedly possessing stolen license plates on an automobile in Brooklyn.
The NYPD is very aggressive about this due to a common crime where people
use different plates to dodge tickets and/or insurance issue. After being
arrested and released with a desk appearance ticket for criminal possession of
stolen property, pl 16540, our client
contacted us. We discussed ways to get the case successfully resolved – specifically
about ways to avoid
jail and a criminal record. We went to court on the arraignment date and subsequently,
we noticed that the Brooklyn prosecutor failed to file a legally sufficient
complaint in court and were able to get the charges dropped and the matter sealed.
