■Our client was indicted in federal court on counts of Grand Larceny and Grand Theft Auto as an alleged mastermind of an international car smuggling ring. If convicted, our client faced a mandatory term of imprisonment in a federal penitentiary to be followed by deportation. By adroit legal maneuvering prior to trial, we secured a disposition of no jail time, not even probation, with avoidance of deportation proceedings (U.S. v. Ayala).
■Our client was charged in state court with embezzling $188,000.00 of his employer’s money. If convicted after trial, our client faced a sentence of at least one year in jail. Through skillful pre-trial negotiation, we secured a disposition requiring no jail time whatsoever for the client(People v. Rivera)
■Indicted on a larceny-related charge of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree and facing a mandatory term of one year in jail, this defendant came to us because his prior attorney had been unable to get a plea bargain ensuring no jail time. After a suppression hearing compelled by our attorneys, we got all charges against this client dismissed prior to trial (People v. Irrazary).
Facing Larceny Charges Knowing You HaveÂ a Strong Defense Team
Much can be made to happen before trial, depending on the lawyer. Our attorneys will file motions, which require a judge to rule on issues about statements or identification or other issues raised in evidentiary hearings. Where possible, our attorneys will make a motion to dismiss your case or to sever it from codefendants, if any. Our attorney’s pre-trial accomplishments often affect the outcome of a case, determining whether or not charges are dismissed prior to trial.
In any felony, you have the right to trial by jury if you face a sentence or more than six (6) months in jail. To convict you, the prosecution must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. At trial, attorneys from the Blanch Law Firm will cross-examine the prosecution’s hostile witnesses and counter with friendly witnesses, offer evidence that helps you, and argue in your defense. In countless cases, our attorneys’ masterful courtroom skills have made the difference between a client’s conviction and acquittal.
