Colonial Heights Embezzlement Nolle Prosequi
Our Colonial Heights VA Criminal Defense Attorneys represented a client who was wrongfully accused of embezzlement. Our client was an employee of a local chain restaurant whose accounting department was reporting missing money. Our client maintained from the onset of the investigation that she had nothing to do with the missing money. Our client was working the day the money in question went missing but denied having anything to do with the situation. The only evidence linking our client to the alleged crime was a questionable statement from another employee who was also a suspect. After working the case in great detail, we were able to convince the Commonwealth’s Attorney to drop or nolle prosequi the case.
Colonial Heights Felony Criminal Traffic Charges Nolle Prosequi
Our Colonial Heights criminal lawyers successfully represented a client from New York who made a big mistake when pulled over by a state trooper for speeding. Our client panicked because her driver’s license was suspended. She thought that if she provided the name and identifying information of a another person who had a valid driver’s license that she would simply receive a speeding ticket and be on her way. The problem for our client was that the state trooper became very suspicious and began to investigate in detail. As it turned out, the state trooper captured the entire traffic stop on video and was able to determine the true identity of our client. Our client was later arrested and charged with 2 counts of felony forgery, 3 misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended driver’s license and providing false information to law enforcement, and speeding. Remarkably, with hard work and skilled advocacy, we were able to convince the court and prosecution to drop both felony allegations, the suspended license allegation, and to not impose any active jail sentence on providing false information to law enforcement. Our client was happy to avoid a felony conviction and a jail sentence.
