Felony Larceny Reduced to a Misdemeanor
On behalf of Randall & Stump, PLLC in White Collar Crimes on Tuesday, June 26, 2018
The client was charged with felony larceny by an employee wherein it was alleged that he stole almost $30,000 from the United States Postal Service. The prosecutor indicated that he was looking to indict the client on individual counts, which would have resulted in over 20 charges. After our review of the discovery provided by the state and further negotiations with the prosecutor, he agreed to not indict the client and to reduce the felony theft charges to misdemeanor larceny. Further, the restitution amount was reduced from almost $30,000 to just over $5,000, saving the client over $20,000. The client avoided any felony conviction and was placed on unsupervised probation.
