Second offense Felony Embezzlement charge was REDUCED to a Misdemeanor and resulted in NO JAIL TIME.

County of Fairfax General District Court at 4110 Chain Bridge Rd, Fairfax, Virginia 22030.

(Unrelated first offense Felony Embezzlement charge was in Alexandria, and client had a different attorney for that case. In that case, client was sentenced to two weeks in jail. The penalty on a second offense is usually harsher than for the first offense, hence the tremendous victory in this case.)
