Theft of services (taxi) dismissed in Manhattan

Theft of services (taxi) dismissed in Manhattan

Our client allegedly refused to pay a cab driver at the end of the trip and when the police were called, our client persisted by still refusing to pay the cab driver. The NYPD arrested our client, charged theft of services (PL 165.15(3)) and released our client with a desk appearance ticket. Our client contacted us because was having difficulty sleeping because any conviction would be a big problem given our client was a professional with a high-level position. We were able to get our client’s case resolved quickly and quietly by working out a settlement with the prosecutor that would get the arrest removed from our client’s criminal record and no conviction. Our client had to pay a little restitution but no jail, no probation, and no conviction.
