Generally, theft is taking property from another with the intent to deprive the owner of that property. Theft can take many forms, from taking physical property, to stealing someone’s credit or identity. Some thefts are charged as misdemeanors, while many others are charged as felonies. When money is involved, the penalties can become more severe, depending on the amount of loss.
The experienced criminal defense lawyer will evaluate all possible defenses after reviewing the prosecution’s evidence, obtaining a full understanding of the facts and circumstances from the client’s perspective, and determining the true amount of loss. Frequently, the defense will need to conduct its own independent investigation to expand the client’s options.
Our primary goal is to keep our clients charged with theft offenses out of jail. By following our comprehensive defense preparation plan, we have been successful in reaching that goal for many clients. Every case presents its unique circumstances, and understanding those circumstances must be the lawyer’s starting point.
