95% of criminal cases never go to trial but get pled out

I am glad this guy is getting some time...let us know the outcome of sentencing

Ok, So dude plead guilty to the crime of theft over $600. The deal is that he is to pay my $1500 and 2 years in jail. As the judge asked him questions to make sure he understood what he was doing, he stopped and talked with his lawyer a few times. I thought he was going to change his mind when the judge told him that by pleading guilty he gave up his right to appeal. Any case, he asked the judge to take the $1500 out of the $5000 bond that he is trying to get back. He also has to pay me 12% interest on money. The sentencing date is set for my May 25th which is the same day I married my wife 11 years ago. As it sits, if the judge does not pass sentence outside of the plea deal then it is just a matter of what he gets. If the judge goes outside of the plea deal, he has the chance to change his plea. So, we shall see. Anthony

so this guy helps to steal a $45,000 vehicle and has to pay $1,680 and gets fed for two years? They should have leaned on him to give up his buddies, and when he didn't let him sit in jail for awhile longer....

The Det. told me that he claims that he does not know where the other guy is. The issue is that he only has some misdemeanors against him. So in the eyes of the court this is his first felony. He may or may not serve any jail time. That is what we are waiting to see. I have been told to not be surprised if he only gets probation out of this. Anthony

Here is the end of this chapter. The dude they caught was sentenced to 5 years probation. He must test drug free and hold a full time job for all 5 years. If he gets caught stealing again, he will have to spend the rest of his sentence in prison. The one positive is that I did get the $1500 out of it. Of course, that went to pay for stuff for the new camper. The detective gives the guy no more than a year before he is back stealing. He believes that dude will end up in jail.

The police are looking for the second guy. And I will have to do this entire process again for his trial when he is found. The End at least for now........ Anthony

Congrats on at least getting the one guy sentenced...and with a chance of him having to do jail time because he won't be able to help himself in the future.
I am sorry you will have to go through the process again when they catch guy #2. Did you ask the detective if you will be able to get $1500 from him also? (It could be the only silver lining from this)

I have folllowed this post from the beginning and I send my condolensces to all victims of crime, as you all saw the owner of the property was not the only victim, but his family, along with the other families these pepetrators came in contact with just involving this one trailer let alone what ever else they stole, Remember the charity bowl in the office. I am a 30 year law enforcemnet retiree, I can remember being raised on a farm in Pa. and really believing that if you broke the law, they would come down on you real hard and put you away for a long time. Maybe some of that was true in the 40's and 50's,Like I said I started on a police department in the Metro St Louis area and I can tell you this, my first reaction was wow, crime does pay and very handsomely. this was just my reaction to how few career criminals were caught and how high the number of crimes were that were never solved. Than you factor in the lawyers, and judges ( who incidently have to be lawyers to get their jobs) and even the number of criminals caught gets cut appreciably before anyone goes to jail. I am glad in this case there was some vindication for the trailer owner as mostly there is not.

One often overlooked anti-theft device for RV's is Lo-Jack. The one drawback is that your unit has to be plugged into electricity, or at least plugged in every week or two, depending on what's drawing your 12v.

We were able to buy Lo-Jack for two of our vehicles for $350, each. The gal said she was making $50 from each one & that was as low as she could go. This was at a local Ford dealership.

On a funny side note...the next new car we bought (after buying the 2 Lo-Jacks), the finance guy looked us straight in the eye and said that Lo-Jack sets the price and he is only allowed to charge $750 (for 1 basic unit), no more, no less. Liars---you gotta love em.

Anyway, sorry to hear these dirtbags stole your property. It's a shame that for burglary & auto theft he gets probation as a punishment. Our criminal justice system is broke.
