3rd Degree Credit Card Fraud Dismissed
09 May, 2014
By admin

Recently our law firm represented a client who had been indicted for a crime of credit card fraud in Union County Superior Court. The prosecutor’s office alleged that our client had used a stolen credit card to try and purchase merchandise from the Target store in Union Township. At the time, the store clerk contacted the local police department to report her suspicions, which later led to an arrest. Our client was indicted a 3rd degree indictable felony crime where he faced up to 3 – 5 years in state prison and thousands of dollars in restitution and fines. The case was first referred to Plea Disposition Conference “PDC” at the Superior Court but when a plea agreement could not be reached, the case was indicted by the Grand Jury and sent to a criminal trial judge. After working with the Union County Assistant Prosecutor, we were able to negotiate a complete dismissal of the indictment without a trial. Therefore, our client was able to avoid a criminal conviction, thousands in fines and restitution, and not incarceration from the charges.
