Las Vegas resident Joey Kadmiri has been sentenced to 10 years after being convicted of a host of offenses. Court documents say that Kadmiri was arrested after being caught trying to steal costumes and props from the Thunder from Down Under show at the Excalibur. When confronted by performers, Kadmiri tried to argue that he was a new cast member. He pulled a gun, firing twice before being subdued.
Kadmiri’s lawyers presented evidence regarding their client’s history of mental health issues and detailed the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father. Ultimately, the defendant pled guilty to felony theft, battery and weapons charges.
Kadmiri’s situation was made worse by the firearm he had in his possession at the time of the attempted theft. He broke Nevada law NRS 202.290 when he aimed the gun at people. Depending upon the value of the items he attempted to steal, he may have also broken NRS 205.240 for petit larceny or NRS 205.220 for grand larceny. Being convicted of either brings serious consequences.
Being accused of theft or pointing a gun at someone can affect a person for the rest of their life. It is essential to secure the services of the criminal defense attorneys at the Potter Law Offices if you are facing similar charges.
