Client was an executive at a publicly traded company, charged with stealing a $1,650.00 bag from a store in Manhattan; video surveillance showed him rather cavalierly stealing the bag right under the nose of the salesperson. Not good. Client’s entire career was on the line and the prosecutors were not forgiving- plea to the charge or go to trial. Nevertheless, after a year of maneuvering and negotiation, was able to get the prosecutors to offer the ACD which was entered today. The case will be dismissed and sealed in six months. Great win. Happy for the client who just made a bad decision. Fortunately it won’t ruin the rest of his life.
