Felony Theft Admitted into Diversion Program

Our client was installing an HVAC system in the house of an elderly couple when an ordinary day at work turned into his worst nightmare. Suspicious, the homeowner began watching our client as he cleaned up after the completion of the project. She believed she saw him take her pain medication from her medicine cabinet.

She immediately called his boss and the police. Our client was suspended from work until the matter was sorted out. Months later, the county prosecutors indicted him on a 4th degree felony theft charge.

Chase Mallory met our client at court and entered a plea of not guilty and obtained a recognizance bond. After months of litigation, the prosecutors refused to make an offer on the felony theft case. Our client was steadfast in his innocence and elected to go to jury trial.

While preparing for trial, Mr. Mallory obtained a call from the prosecuting attorney on the eve of trial. Recognizing some weaknesses in the felony theft case and exercising gracious discretion, the prosecutor decided to allow our client into their diversion program. Upon completion of a diversion program, all charges are dismissed and eligible for expungement.

Through preparation and the refusal to back down, our client avoided a felony theft conviction.
