Attempted grand larceny charges dismissed in press case (Manhattan)


Our client was accused of refusing to return property to someone who had hired our client to perform services on that property. It was an extortion according to the district attorney because our client was demanding payment before returning the property. The case was covered in the local press because of the novelty of the alleged crime and also due to the identity of the alleged victim. Our client contacted us for help. For nearly a year of litigation in which we reviewed police reports, witness statements, and argued with the prosecutor for a reduction of the charges. We noticed that the prosecutor made a critical procedural error and successfully argued for a dismissal based on this error. The case was dismissed and the record sealed.
