Los Angeles Man for Grand Theft after Stealing Movie Posters from Bus Shelters

Posted By Los Angeles Criminal Defense Lawyer || 7-Jun-2012

A Los Angeles man, Christian Stevens, plead no contest to one count of grand theft after being accused of stealing 3,000 movie posters from bus shelters and selling them online. He used an online auction site and sold them for more than $450,000.

Stevens stole the movie posters owned by CBS over the course of several months. Acting on a tip from CBS security, LAPD detectives went online to purchase one of the posters. After securing a search warrant for Stevens' home, investigators found a trove of the posters, which have "not for resale" stamped on the back.

Stevens has been sentenced to 25 days in county jail, three years of formal probation and a two-year suspended prison sentenced. If he fails to comply with any of the terms of the negotiated settlement, Stevens could be sentenced to state prison.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with grand theft, petty theft, burglary, robbery, or any other type of theft crime, it is essential to hire an aggressive Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer in order to protect your future.
