Embezzlement Case

Felony Charges Dismissed

My client was a project manager for a small shower and bath construction company. The company had fallen on bad times and decided to accuse my client of using his company credit card to purchase materials for jobs unrelated to the company. A judge heard the potential evidence at the preliminary hearing and dismissed both felony counts.

Don't Plead Guilty Without Considering All Your Options

Not every criminal case requires that you plead guilty. In fact, many misdemeanors can be resolved without the defendant suffering a criminal conviction. As of January 1, 2021, judges are permitted and encouraged to offer diversion to defendants charged with misdemeanor offenses. Judicial diversion allows the defendant to avoid the devastating consequences of a criminal conviction by completing a class, community service, or other similar program.
