A 40-year-old pediatric nurse, who was charged with stealing a bag containing with $140,000 in jewelry from boxing star Jermall Charlo during an altercation at Jay Z’s 40/40 club in Manhattan, has been cleared of theft, New York City prosecutors revealed last Thursday.

Sarah Morin was facing charges of grand larceny and possession of stolen property after stealing Charlo’s bag.

However, TMZ reported that assistant district attorney Maria Luna had announced that an investigation cleared her of the charges and that there was no evidence she intentionally stole the items.

“After reviewing video from the club and interviewing witnesses, it is undisputed that the defendant was given the bag to watch by an associate of the complaining witness,” Luna indicated in Manhattan Criminal Court.

She noted that Morin had attempted to return the Louis Vuitton bag filled with medallions, chains, and a diamond-encrusted boxing glove charm, to Jermall Charlo before police got in touch with her.

However, prosecutors stopped short of asking the judge to drop the case completely.

The felony charges were dismissed in exchange for the woman pleading to a charge of disorderly conduct, which is not considered a crime. The file will be sealed in one year.

“My name has been slandered,” Morin said, who cried when she exited the courtroom. “This has been life-changing.”

The nurse, who works with children with cancer, said that the accusations caused her to lose one of her jobs.

The trouble began back in March when Morin and her friends were partying at the 40/40 club, and the light middleweight got into a dispute with another patron.

Charlo’s bodyguard gave her the bag and told her to run, her attorney, Gerard Morrone, contended.

Even though the woman tried to return the bag hours later, she was taken into custody.
