Man On House Arrest Charged With Felony Charges, No Jail

A 35-year-old man was on house arrest for a prior DUI when he was charged with a 1st degree felony for burglary and a 1st degree misdemeanor for theft. The man owned his own concrete company. Criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna spoke to the district attorney at the preliminary hearing and pointed out some weaknesses in the case. The probation officer sent Sarna a letter which completely disputed what the police said in the burglary charge. As a result, the case was dismissed at the preliminary hearing. To get this serious of a case dismissed at the preliminary hearing was a significant result for our client that not many see.

In addition to these charges, he was also charged with a felony for home improvement fraud. The $5,590 contract was for the wife of a state trooper in Pennsylvania. The husband and wife wanted to pursue this case to the fullest extent possible. Samir was able to negotiate with the husband and compromised with a rule 546 agreement. As long as our client paid the full amount of restitution, and all parties were happy, the case would go away. This was a successful result for our client. Having two felony charges with criminal history on his record, jail time was certain but he managed to not serve any time.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
