    Case Dismissed for Pittsburgh Man with Felony Trespassing and Misdemeanor Theft Charges

    Mar 17 2016 in Case Results

    Recently, at Worgul Law Firm, we represented a retired 66-year-old, union pipefitter, who in an attempt to keep his community clean found himself in a precarious legal situation. The local man, who was known for removing trash and debris from his neighborhood came across some items outside of a property, whose occupants were moving out. He mistook the objects, including a small grill, a weed whacker, and a small refrigerator as abandoned and loaded them for disposal. The owners of the property had actually wanted to take them with them and called police when they were taken. The police spoke with the man and subsequently charged him with felony trespassing and misdemeanor theft charges, such as trespassing, breaking into a structure, and misdemeanor theft between $200 and $2,000. The man was understandably concerned about the possible consequences and retained the services of the Pittsburgh criminal defense attorneys at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.

    Samir Sarna saw these charges were the result of a misunderstanding and effectively negotiated on our client’s behalf. The items were promptly returned to their owners and all of the felony and misdemeanor charges were dismissed, alleviating our client’s legal concerns.
