Not Guilty Verdict in Reading, PA Burglary Trial

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Attorney Dan Nevins won a jury verdict last week for a client charged with Felony Burglary in Berks County, PA. The Client had been accused of breaking into the home of an acquaintence and stealing over $40,000 in rare coins, collectibles and cash. The case was particularly difficult since police found some of the alleged stolen items at Client’s residence and police claimed that Client had made an incriminating statement.

In the end, the Jury acquitted the Client of all felony counts including Burglary, Criminal Trespass and Theft. The Jury found him guilty only of Receiving Stolen Property at the misdemeanor level – and consequently saving Client from being ordered to pay over $40,000 in restitution.
