60 Felony Charges of White Collar crimes Pled to One Misdemeanor
Client was charged with 60 counts of white collar crime including numerous conspiracy charges, forgery, and fraud charges spanning over a decade. Client was one of numerous co-defendants. Because there were different dates of violation alleged for the different "alleged" conspiracies and acts, if convicted Client would have been facing mandatory prison.
Ms. Ferraro's Motion to Dismiss raising a violation of the Statute of Limitations (the time in which the State has to file a crime) was granted disposing some of the charges. After further work up of the case, the State agreed to dismiss the remaining charges if Client pled guilty to one offense, which was designated a misdemeanor at sentencing.
