Charges dismissed in stolen property from JFK airport case (Queens)


Lance’s client, a passenger traveling through JFK, was arrested for taking another person’s jacket. Notwithstanding it being our client’s first arrest, our client still faced criminal charges and up to a year in jail if convicted. Our client contacted us for help. The prosecutor felt confident because our client was observed sitting while holding the alleged stolen jacket. Lance was able to negotiate with the prosecutor because of some strong mitigating information – information that helped to explain that there was more to the overall story than just what the NYPD told the prosecutor. We reached an agreement that the case would be completely dismissed as long as our client attended some counseling and agreed to not be arrested for 6 months. No jail, no probation, no criminal record.
