State v. Ms. C (DMC No. 9220)

EMBEZZLEMENT/FRAUDULENT SCHEMES ($84,000) and THEFT REDUCED to PROBATION with Zero Days Actual Jail – State v. Ms. C (DMC No. 9220) (Yavapai County Superior Court No. CR2009-01178): Ms. C worked for a trash collection company in Yavapai County Arizona. While she was there, she had access to the checkbook for the company. She would sometimes write checks to herself, and other times would take pre signed checks from the owner and fill them out to be paid to herself. This totaled $84,000 over a 4 year period. After Ms. C was charged, we were able to present evidence to the prosecutor that she had various problems, and due to her young age she began stealing the money. Because she had no prior criminal convictions, we secured an offer which allowed the judge to sentence Ms. C from anywhere from probation up to 12.5 years in prison. At sentencing, we convinced the judge to give Ms. C Probation, and to impose a 6 month jail term that was “Deferred”. This meant that if she complied with probation, the jail time could be pushed out further dates and ultimately removed. Due to her excellent compliance, she never did any time in jail.
