Lancaster County District Court, Judge Darla Ideus

Attorney for Appellant: Christopher Eickholt (Eickholt Law LLC)

Attorney for Appellee: Kimberly A. Klein (Assistant Attorney General)

Criminal Action: Theft by Deception (over $1,500) and Criminal Possession of Financial Transaction Device (Four or more)

Action Taken by the Trial Court: Following a trial, the jury found Joel J. Carmenates guilty of theft by deception, with the property having a value of $1,744.53, and criminal possession of four or more financial transaction devices that were each issued to different account holders. The district court sentenced Carmenates on his convictions consecutively to a total of 6 to 10 years’ imprisonment with credit for 209 days’ time served.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Carmenates claims, reordered and restated, that (1) there was insufficient evidence to support both of his convictions, (2) the sentence imposed is excessive, and (3) he received ineffective assistance of trial counsel in several respects.
