Type of Case/Charge(s): Grand Theft in the 3rd Degree, Dealing in Stolen Property
Summary: After maintenance workers fixed a homeowner’s toilet, the homeowner noticed that his gold, diamond ring was missing. Law Enforcement found the ring at a local pawn shop. Pawn records showed that our client (one of the maintenance workers who fixed the toilet) had pawned this ring. Law Enforcement arrested him for stealing the ring and pawning it, soon after. Longwell Lawyers’ Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert Benjamin Jones immediately reached out to investigators and prosecutors, challenging the sufficiency of the prosecution’s case. Ultimately, prosecutors decided not to formally charge our client with any crime at all.
Result: No Charges Filed
