The Defendant resided in an apartment and was employed by the owner of the complex to do a variety of tasks, including collecting rent from the other tenants. The Defendant was fired from his job. After being fired, the Defendant allegedly collected rent in the amount of $2500.00 from tenants and kept the money for himself. He moved out of the apartment and allegedly stole all of the furniture from his unit. He was identified by the tenants as the person who they had given the rent money to. He was also identified by a witness as the person seen moving furniture out of the apartment. He was facing up to 5 years in prison as a result of the charges. The attorney for the firm prepared the case for trial, and the State Attorney eventually dropped all charges against the Defendant.
