    Our client landed in hot water when she was accused of theft from her former employer. She was alleged to have stolen about $300. She didn’t face jail time for a theft of that amount, but she had a spotless record with no prior criminal history and wanted to preserve her good record. She came to the Pittsburgh criminal defense lawyers at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC for help with her theft charge.

    We reviewed the case and talked with the woman about how she wanted to proceed. Because of the weakness of the prosecution’s case and our client’s desire to avoid a conviction on her record, we decided to proceed with her theft case to a bench trial in front of a judge with no jury.

    At the trial, the case was dismissed immediately following the prosecutor’s presentation of the Commonwealth’s case against our client. Our client achieved the result she desired with no theft conviction on her record.
