REDUCED | THEFT ($324,000) REDUCED to class 6 open/misdemeanor with PROBATION and 30 DAYS in JAIL – State v. Mr. H. (DMC No. 6534) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2006-031231): Mr. H. worked for a local “truss” company, and he was responsible for placing all orders. He would order more trusses that were actually needed, and then would hide the existence of the purchase of the extra trusses. He would then sell the extra trusses on the side to make additional income. This went on over the course of years, and when it was discovered, we became involved in the case. We negotiated a partial civil settlement with Mr. H.’s former company, and we’re able to prevent charges of Fraudulent Schemes from being filed. However, the charge of Theft was filed. Due to the cooperation with the Gila River Police Department and the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, we secured an offer to a class 6 open/misdemeanor with probation and 30 days in jail. Upon completion of probation, the case was turned into a misdemeanor and Mr. H. has no felony on his record.
