Theft Attorney

It is always important to appoint a lawyer in any criminal case, but especially in theft cases. You may not go to jail for petty theft, but having a conviction for a theft crime on your record can destroy your professional life. If you or your loved one has been charged with a theft crime, contact the Fresno Criminal Attorney to discuss your theft case.

Theft crimes take many forms such as:

Sentences for theft crimes are based on the monetary value of that which was stolen and the offender’s criminal history. A client with no criminal history that is arrested for simple shoplifting faces up to one year in jail, restitution, and a fine, but will probably receive no more than probation, restitution, and a fine.

Grand theft is the charge for any theft of items valued at over $400. This type of crime can be charged as a felony, and if convicted will result in a minimum sentence of 16 months in state prison.

A larceny charge can be increased to robbery if there was an assault during the crime. If you commit an act of robbery with a weapon you will be charged with armed robbery.

The Fresno Criminal Attorney is an advocate for every client. Even if you have been arrested for a theft crime, you still have rights. Protect those rights by choosing an attorney that will aggressively defend you.
