Case Conclusion Date: 04.12.2017
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Description: Client and his wife were charged with Theft Third Degree under RCW 9A.56.050. The evidence included surveillance video showing Client and his wife stealing items from a department store and escaping in a SUV. The vehicle's license place was shown on the surveillance video. Through that, the police traced the vehicle's ownership to Defendant and his wife. They were were mailed criminal citations and a court summons. This crime is a gross misdemeanor punishable up to 1 year jail and a $5,000 fine. Making matters worse, it is a crime of dishonesty which (1) deters future employment, (2) jeopardizes obtaining government benefits, and (3) decreases a witness's credibility while testifying. Mr. Ransom's investigations showed that Client and his wife sold their SUV weeks before the incident happened. Moreover, their physical descriptions did not match the traits of those caught on video stealing the merchandise. Prosecutor dismissed.
