Felony theft charges lowered (Manhattan)

Lance’s client was arrested for stealing merchandise from an employer which was caught on video. The NYPD issued our client a desk appearance ticket and we appeared in court for the arraignment and our client contacted us for help. Our client was charged with grand larceny. In subsequent conversations with the District Attorney, we were alerted that they were pursuing felony charges because the merchandise was valued at several thousand dollars. In discussing certain key facts that seemed to suggest that the video evidence was not as convincing as the NYPD suggested, we negotiated a deal to get the case resolved with only a guilty plea to disorderly conduct, a non-criminal violation and no criminal record, no jail time.
