Theft charges for taking merchandise from a business dismissed (Manhattan)


Lance’s client was arrested for allegedly stealing bottle of alcohol from behind the bar in a club. The bottle, valued at several hundred dollars, was recovered in our client’s possession and was arrested. Our client was charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, a situation made worse by the fact that our client was a professional with an employer who regularly conducted background checks. Our client contacted us for help. We were able to convince the prosecutor to be lenient under the circumstances of the case and negotiated a deal to have the case completely dismissed as long as our client stayed arrest-free for 6 months and payed the club back for the value of the bottle.
