February 2012 Larceny and Conspiracy to Commit Larceny Over $250: Continued Without a Finding
Mother and son were charged with engaging in an elaborate scheme to steal from various department stores during the holiday season. According to law enforcement authorities the duo allegedly stole from innumerous stores in two states and multiple locations within each state. The mother and son were ultimately apprehended after being captured on video surveillance while leaving a department store with a carriage full of merchandise for which they did not pay. Some of the stolen property was recovered while other property was never recovered. Authorities are unable to estimate the value of the total loss to all retail victims. Notwithstanding the mother and son were individually charged with Larceny Over $250 and Conspiracy to commit the same. Attorney Calcagni represented the mother against the pending charges. He successfully negotiated a disposition of her case which spared her from jail time Ö as requested by the prosecutor Ö and provided her with the opportunity to maintain a clean criminal record which she has maintained for most of her life. Attorney Calcagni obtained a Continuation without a Finding (CWOF) for twelve (12) months on his clientÓ³ behalf. Providing she is not charged with a new offense during this period her case will be dismissed in one year and she will not incur a criminal conviction from this incident. Congratulations to this client.
