It Depends On The Case
As a first-time offender, he would generally qualify for a pretrial diversion program. However, because this is an employee theft case it is highly likely that the state attorneys office will not afford him that opportunity. While it is still possible, it is more problematic. The benefit of pretrial diversion is that he would have the opportunity to earn a dismissal of the charges, which is significant since this is a felony case.
Additionally, he may have some defenses to the charges and other potential ways of securing a dismissal of the charge. The best thing that he can do to put himself in the best possible position is to speak with several qualified, experienced criminal defense attorneys that practice in the county where the case is pending. With his lawyer’s help he should be able to secure the best possible outcome.
