State v. D.S.

January, 2018
Charges: Felony theft by swindle

Stay of imposition for three years. Client stole in excess of $18,000 from an employer through an elaborate scheme he had developed. This was his first criminal case and he lost everything as a result of the charges. After barely losing a motion to dismiss evidence seized pursuant to search warrants, the client positioned himself properly to limit his exposure. The end result is the client will earn a misdemeanor conviction after probation. On probation, he must complete the gambling addiction program he had started, continue going to GA, continue with other mental health care, and is only required to serve three days in jail - far less than the sixty initially sought by the State. All in all, it's a fantastic result for the client.
