Theft Charges Dismissed in DuPage County

My client was facing serious Theft charges in DuPage County. The prosecutor was alleging that my client, while employed at a bank, moved money from one bank account from a customer he was related to into another account that he had control over and withdrew the money without the permission of the family friend. The state claimed that he stole about $3,000 from the friend's bank account. The state was unwilling to negotiate a deal so the case was set for trial and the state had to dismiss the charges against my client when they realized they did not have the evidence needed to prove that my client was guilty of the Theft. My client has since started his own thriving business in Schaumburg. A conviction for a Theft would have made it impossible for him to start his own business. I am glad that I was able to save my client from a life changing event.
