Queens stolen property case dismissed
Undercover police officer allegedly approached our client and sold our
client a stolen piece of gold after telling our client that it was stolen.
Our client bought it and was
arrested and given a desk appearance ticket for criminal possession of stolen property,
PL 165.40. Our client came to see us for a
case evaluation, worried because conviction could have resulted in a year of
jail and immigration consequences. We argued improper police department procedure
to the district attorney and negotiated a settlement where as long as
our client agreed to not be
arrested for six months, the case would be dismissed and sealed. No
jail, no probation, and no criminal record.
