Alleged New York mugger faces charges over $94 and a lighter

When some people need money, they might become so desperate for it that they are willing to do almost anything to get some cash. For some, this means trying to take money from other people. It is against the law to take money from other people, so if the person who was desperate for money gets caught, criminal charges might be filed. For one New York man, making the choice to try to take money from another man ended up causing him some trouble.

The 54-year-old man allegedly took $94 from the victim's hand near West Fourth Street and Sixth Avenue. He also took a Bic lighter. The 52-year-old victim decided to run after the man to get his money back. The chase went on until the victim caught the man outside of the Christopher Street station.

The incident, which occurred around 7:30 on the morning of Feb. 9, 2014, included a half-mile chase through a subway tunnel. At the end of the chase, the alleged mugger tried to hail a cab, but the victim held him.

Since 1983, the alleged mugger has been arrested more than 60 times. He has been charged with trespassing, robbery, and criminal possession of stolen property in connection with the incident. Police found marijuana and cocaine on him, so he is also facing drug charges.

Before this man enters pleas for these charges, he should make sure that he fully understands the charges against him. Seeking the advice of a New York criminal defense attorney might help him to understand the charges and how to answer them.
