Larceny over $250.00
Client was a young man who stole over five thousand ($5,000.00) dollars worth of electronic goods from a chain store in the course of his employment there. The case against client was strong as the store had investigated the case for months and assembled a trove of electronic evidence. In addition, they secured an admission to the crime from client prior to him being formally charged. Negotiations continued for several months and parties involved reached an agreement: client would admit to the charge, he doesn’t pay any probation fees, agrees to take a half program to learn about theft, and pays back the money of the items that he stole. In the end, no conviction would appear on his record as long as he complies with the agreement.

Eventually, a decision was made by the District Attorney to Nolle Prosse -which means to dismiss the charges and close the case with no admission or wrongdoing of any criminal act.

April 7th 2016
Assault and Battery
Client was a hard working painter and father to two beautiful children. He also was a long time spouse to equally pleasant woman. When he suspected she was texting a male friend, he took a glass of milk and drenched her in it. He lost his cool and he readily admitted it. There was no marriage waiver to enlist and there was no Fifth Amendment to invoke, so she was summoned to trial. At trial, the defendant's partner was interviewed by the victim witness advocate and the District Attorney. She was adamant that she was not going to participate with this prosecution. The prosecution simply agreed to dismiss the charge in its entirety, moments before the day of trial.
RESULT: Assault and Battery, DISMISSED
