Felony Destruction Of Property And Grand Larceny Charges Dismissed In Arlington County.
Client with no prior criminal history charged with Felony Destruction of Property and Grand larceny following a dispute with his landlord and girlfriend. It was alleged that my client took his girlfriend?s cell phone without her permission and that he smashed her laptop prior to fleeing the scene. My client adamantly denied the allegations and maintained his innocence. Extensive investigation into case showed a number of discrepancies in the accounts provided by arresting police officer and complaining witness. Negotiations with prosecuting attorney resulted in both felony charges being dropped against my client at the preliminary hearing stage.
