Subway Offense

Were you handcuffed, photographed and given a desk appearance ticket for something in the subway?

Many subway offenses are misdemeanors which are punishable by up to one year in jail.

The NYPD often makes an arrest in the subway for:

  1. Assault (fights)
  2. Lewdness / Exposure
  3. Unlawful Surveillance (upskirting)
  4. Stealing personal property from someone else

The NYPD rarely makes arrests (currently) for entering without paying.

His office takes immediate action to see if your charges can be dismissed or substantially reduced. Mr. Fletcher, a former prosecutor, will thoroughly evaluate your case and will conduct an independent investigation.
