Theft Crimes

Having theft charges brought against you can affect both your personal and professional life. The consequences of these types of offenses can be severe. Depending on the circumstances, people convicted of theft can find themselves facing penalties that range from a small fine all the way up to imprisonment for up to 20 years or to payment of a fine of up to $100,000 or both. In addition, theft is considered a crime of dishonesty and even a low level conviction can cause life-long consequences as an obstacle to educational or occupational aspirations. Regardless of the severity of the offense it is important that you fully understand the charges, your rights, and the potential consequences of the charges you face. In many cases, your case will hinge on your interactions with law enforcement. Remember that you do have a right to consult with an attorney at all times during a criminal investigation.
