Receiving Stolen Property, Other Charges DismissedFeb 03 2015 in 2015, Case Results, Theft Crimes
Our client was charged with a third-degree felony count of receiving stolen property, a first-degree misdemeanor count of theft of leased property, and a third-degree misdemeanor count of criminal mischief. If convicted on all counts, our client faced a maximum prison sentence of 14 years of incarceration.
Our client knew that he needed a lawyer to represent him in defense of the receiving stolen property and other charges. He contacted the Pittsburgh criminal defense lawyers at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC for help.
Prior to our client’s preliminary hearing on the charges, we were able to convince the prosecutor to withdraw the receiving stolen property charge. That left the theft of leased property and criminal mischief charges pending.
After the preliminary hearing, the judge in the case dismissed the remaining charges. Our client was able to move on with his life.
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.
