Our client was charged in three separate cases of 2nd and 3rd degree felonies (including Burglary of a dwelling and felony theft). In total, he was facing a maximum of 25 years in prison for allegedly posting an Orlando apartment for rent on Craigslist, taking cash deposits from persons interested in renting the unit, but failing to deliver the apartment or return the deposit. A total of four people came forward alleging that our client had taken their money and was not on the lease of the apartment, and did not have a right to rent to them.
Through weeks of intense negotiation with the State, The Modarres Law Firm was able to negotiate a plea offer to reduce the felony charges (under Florida Statute 810.02 and 812.014(2)), and the amended charges would carry a Withhold of Adjudication so no criminal charges would go on our client’s criminal record. Our client also received no jail time under the terms of the plea.
