State vs. JV
The Client was arrested for Grand Theft after surveillance footage showed the Client removing a container of bracelets from a popular establishment in Tampa. As each bracelet had a retail value of $45, the Client exceeded the petit theft charge as the total amount of items stolen was over $300 and the Client faced possible prison time up to 5 years for the third-degree felony charge of Grand Theft. The Rickman Law Firm negotiated with the State to allow the Client to participate in a diversion program and the Client was accepted. Upon completion of the program, the Client’s charge is administratively dismissed.
