Litigation Group Successfully Negotiates Plea Arrangement in Grand Larceny Case

David Lazer of the Firm’s Litigation Practice Group recently negotiated a plea arrangement for a criminal defendant charged with Grand Larceny for stealing more than $38,000.00 from a little league baseball program in a much publicized case. The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office recommended to the Court a sentence of 1-3 years in state prison. Despite that drastic recommendation, the Firm’s attorneys were able to persuade the Court to accept a guilty plea with a sentence of 16 weekends in county jail, plus a term of probation, to which the defendant agreed. Through persistent advocacy, the Firm’s attorneys subsequently convinced the judge to eliminate the jail portion of the sentence entirely and instead impose only a probation term, restitution and community service.
