White Plains Criminal Defense Lawyer Gets Petit Larceny Charges Dismissed
The White Plains City Court located at the 77 S Lexington Ave, White Plains, NY 10601, is home to one of the busiest city courts in Westchester County and handles all Criminal Cases, Traffic and Speeding Tickets, Parking Violations and Civil Small Claims arising in the City.
Recently, our criminal defense lawyer appeared in the White Plains Criminal Court and successfully defended a client charged with Petit Larceny (Penal Law Section 155.25) a Class A misdemeanor.
Most concerning to the client was that a conviction for Petit Larceny may be punished with up to 12 months in jail, years of supervised probation, and hundreds of dollars in fines. In addition, as a criminal misdemeanor such a conviction would remain on her record indefinitely.
Keeping in mind that such cases are prosecuted vigorously by the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, our defense attorney immediate acted and worked diligently with the client prior to the first court date. Typically, such action is extremely important as it can greatly impact the results of the case.
Ultimately, the client avoided a criminal conviction and through negotiations received an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal or ACD. With the ACD, the charges were dismissed, the record sealed and the client avoided the penalties associated with a misdemeanor conviction.
