Most criminal charges have a wide ranging degree of severity. The same is true for theft crimes. They can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the value of what was stolen and whether you have prior convictions. If, for example, a person stole some jewelry valued at $300 and had no prior record, they would probably be charged with a misdemeanor. If the value was over $400 it would probably be a felony.

We handle all theft crime charges, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Fraud
  • White Collar Crimes

Another factor of concern is that there are aggravating circumstances that can elevate charges and penalties, including the use of a weapon or injuring a victim. Our state also has a three strikes law. Under this law, if you already have one or two strikes, the penalties are going to be harsher. You definitely want to have competent legal representation.

Defense for Theft Crimes

As your attorney, we would immediately review all the evidence and facts known about the case. We want to hear your view of what has occurred. It is not uncommon that theft crimes charges can come about due to a misunderstanding. You thought the person knew you had their property; you fully intended to return it. We have even encountered cases where the person accused didn't even realize he/she had the property in their possession. No matter the circumstances, we will fight for your rights and work diligently to get charges dropped or reduced. You can feel confident that we will get the best possible outcome for your circumstances.
