If you are facing the harsh consequences of a criminal conviction in Pennsylvania, it is extremely useful to have a skilled defense attorney, like Samir Sarna, who has experience maneuvering through the state’s rigid sentencing procedures to find the best result possible. This advice recently helped a woman when she was convicted of felony theft after taking approximately $46,000 from her employer. With the looming threat of a lengthy prison sentence, the woman consulted with attorney Sarna in hopes of mitigating the possible ramifications.
After discussing her circumstances, she followed attorney Sarna’s advice and took proactive steps to begin repaying the amount that she owed. By utilizing her attorney’s ability to negotiate with all the parties involved and strategically postpone court proceedings for a little over two years, this woman was able to make all the necessary installment payments until the entire balance was reimbursed. Once the sentencing hearing arrived, the judge looked favorably on this client’s ability to make amends. As such, she was spared from any jail time and only sentenced to two years of probation for felony theft. The woman was quite grateful to receive such a reduced outcome, which was the result of her attorney’s instrumental advice and experience.
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.
