The Defendant forgot to return a car key to a dealership after taking a vehicle for a test drive. The Defendant had no idea the State charged him with a Petit Theft crime until months later. The Defendant received a Notice of Arraignment after the hearing had passed. The Court issued a Bench Warrant for the Defendant’s failure to appear at the Arraignment hearing.
RESULT: The defense filed a Motion to Withdraw the Warrant and scheduled a hearing on the matter. The Defense contacted the State’s office and convinced them to reconsider the charges filed against the Client. The Defense successfully swayed the Prosecution to RECALL the warrant and throw out the criminal charges.
