Felony stealing charges were filed against a man in the City of St. Louis for “stealing” several thousand dollars worth of goods from an auction without paying for them. The entire charge was simply a misunderstood business transaction, highlighted by extremely sloppy paperwork and follow up by the auctioneer.
Mr. Muhlenkamp filed numerous discovery motions in the case and was able to show Circuit Attorney that the felony stealing charges were going nowhere. Subsequently, the State dismissed the case completely.
