Aggressive Representation Of The Accused 

Providing An Aggressive Defense Against Theft Charges

If you are charged with theft, robbery or burglary, you may be subject to serious consequences: both robbery and burglary may be treated as a “strike,” punishable by time in county jail or the state penitentiary. Likewise, a petty theft or grand larceny conviction could mean a six-month – three-year jail sentence. In addition, theft is a priorable offense, meaning that if you’re convicted of theft and then are caught stealing again (even for something as small as a pack of gum), you can be charged with a felony. There are four kinds of theft:
  • Petty theft/petty larceny involves property valued under $400
  • Grand theft/grand larceny involves property valued over $400
  • Robbery
  • Burglary

No matter which theft-related charge you face, you need to realize that you face a serious threat to your rights, your reputation and your future. Even misdemeanor offenses can result in consequences that haunt you far into your future. The collateral consequences of a conviction include difficulty securing loans, renting an apartment or finding a job. Juveniles can even lose their eligibility for certain scholarships, federal funding and college enrollment.
