Full DISMISSAL in Manhattan Bitcoin Case
June 25, 2018
The Law Office of Ali Najmi represented a principal in a business that provided financial and Bitcoin transaction services. The firm’s platform was used to move stolen funds by an individual unrelated to Mr. Najmi’s client and without his knowledge.
The prosecution was brought by the prestigious Cyber Crimes Unit of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. The client was facing felony charges of Grand Larceny and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property. Mr. Najmi employed a Bitcoin expert to analyze and trace the Bitcoin transactions across exchanges to prove his client did not possess the stolen funds.
Mr. Najmi’s advocacy also highlighted his client’s efforts in maintaining above board practices, and reversing transactions where there was a high risk of fraud.
All charges were dismissed and sealed.
