A client recently came to our firm after being charged with her second theft offense in one year. We represented this client in her first theft offense and were able to reduce the charge to a disorderly conduct offense. The Judge at the Montgomery County Municipal Court informed our client that if she appeared before him again because of a similar offense, he was going to send her to jail for a long time.
Despite this grave warning, the client was charged with theft once again. This time, we were able to get e charges amended to a charge of unauthorized use of property. We were also able to convince a judge that he should not put our client in jail despite his previous threat. The judge agreed that the originally threat was too harsh, and instead placed our client on probation. She was fined $5.00 as penalty for her crime, and is now serving her probation.
This reduced sentence will allow her to continue the activities of her daily life and may help her to avoid losing her job as a result of the charges. At Gounaris Abboud, we use the resources that we have available to research ever client’s case and show why that individual should not be given the sentence that is associated with their original charge.
While we cannot guarantee success, we can guarantee that we will do our best to convince the court you are innocent of your crime or don’t deserve to be sentenced to harsh or time-consuming punishments or penalties. At Gounaris Abboud, we are available to take on a wide variety of theft crimes and can help you to try and prove your innocence. Hire this successful Dayton criminal defense firm today!
