CLIENT CHARGED WITH: Felony Retail Theft

Client is a medical student with a history of retail theft arrests. Mr. Weisberg represented Client in several misdemeanor retail theft cases and was able to get them all dismissed. The client was then arrested on a felony retail theft. Mr. Weisberg got the client into a pretrial diversion program so that the case could be dismissed and the record expunged. Client violated the terms of the diversion program after being arrested on another retail theft case outside of Cook County. Mr. Weisberg was able to convince the Judge not to take the client into custody and instead to give her counseling on the outside. Mr. Weisberg was able to convince the prosecutor and judge to allow the client to take part in the mental health court where she did not have to plead guilty. Instead, she is taking part in outpatient counseling and is doing very well. She is scheduled to have her case dismissed based on her compliance with the counseling. She is on pace to finish with the case being dismissed and the records expunged.
