Here at Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC, our clients are having an amazing week. In addition to our huge dismissal of an entire complex kidnapping case, we got another client a dismissal of an Aggravated Theft charge that would have sent him to prison for a mandatory three years. Our client was accused of stealing a computer, and the victim claimed the computer was worth a fortune. I investigated the victim's restitution request myself, and I subpoenaed purchase records related to the documents he submitted to prove the value of the computer.
Rather than proving the value of the computer, I ended up proving what I suspected all along. The computer wasn't worth a fortune at all. In fact, my client's alleged victim had forged his purchase orders, to prove that the software on his computer was bought and paid for, rather than stolen on BitTorrent. When the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office was informed of the forged evidence, it didn't take long for them to dismiss this case. Here, at Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC, we're not going to leave stones unturned, if we can help our clients.
