Connecticut teen pleads not guilty in case involving stolen sign

When a person in the Elkhorn area finds him or herself facing criminal charges of any kind he or she should take them seriously. If convicted, a person stands to lose many things including his or her freedom. Even if a person has admitted to being involved in a crime he or she has to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

A 19-year-old teenager from Connecticut is facing serious charges after his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run accident. The incident occurred when the young man was allegedly trying to steal a David Hasselhoff sign. According to the Associated Press this kind of theft is not unusual as about 550 Hasselhoff signs were stolen during the summer last year. The 19-year-old young man is facing second-degree assault charges and second-degree reckless endangerment after he allegedly hurt a man while trying to steal the sign.

According to reports, the man attempted to cut down two signs from a pole in a parking lot, when another man tried to stop him. The man reportedly got back in his car and attempted to escape, but the car dragged the other man with it. He was in critical condition at last report. The man who reportedly was attempting to steal the sign later turned himself in to authorities and allegedly admitted to driving the vehicle, but he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

This young man is facing serious charges and the consequences if he is convicted could also be serious. Now would be a good time for him to retain a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney if he hasn’t already. Likewise, anyone else in the Stamford area facing criminal charges should probably do the same.
