No Felony Conviction, No Jail and No Probation: NYC White Collar Criminal Defense Firm Gets Client Misdemeanor and Conditional Discharge for Alleged $25,000 Theft

Crotty Saland PC, a white collar criminal defense firm located in Manhattan, is pleased that we were able to assist another client in obtaining closure to a pending criminal case while preserving her liberty. Our client was charged with Grand Larceny in the 3rd Degree, pursuant to New York Penal Law 155.35, and faced up to seven years in prison for her alleged involvement in a “paper case.” Prosecutors claimed that our client made unauthorized purchases using company credit cards totaling approximately $25,000.00. After reviewing the documents associated with the alleged felony theft, we were able to work out a disposition with prosecutors that departed far from the original accusation. Although the negotiations took some time, our client ultimately pleaded to a misdemeanor and stayed out of jail. Moreover, there was no probation or community service associated with her plea. Considering the real possibility of a felony criminal record and a term of incarceration, our client could not have been happier with the results.

While Crotty Saland PC cannot guarantee any particular result and each case must be handled differently, our experience as both former Manhattan prosecutors under Robert Morgenthau and as New York criminal defense attorneys gives us the experience, knowledge and understanding of the criminal justice system to ascertain and implement the best plan of attack to preserve our client’s rights, integrity and freedom.
