CVS store security observed an employee stealing merchandise. The security staff pulled the employee/suspect aside during his shift to address the theft. The store fired the dishonest employee and pressed Petit Theft charges against him.
Result: The Defendant obtained legal representation from Musca Law to fight the charges. The Defense Attorney entered into intense negotiations with the Prosecutor over the Client’s fate. The Client had previous criminal convictions and could possibly face jail time for his crime. The Defense obtained a generous plea deal from the Prosecution. The Client received no formal finding of guilt on the charges of Petit Theft and did not go back to jail.
