Theft, also known as Larceny, refers to the illegal taking of money or other property from another person or business.
Penalties for theft usually include restitution, the return of the money or property to the damaged parties, and can also include prison time in proportion to the amount of money stolen.
In addition to the return of the money stolen or compensation for property damages, the court can impose interest, fines or penalty assessment fees. This can result in high restitution penalties that can literally create a lifelong financial burden for the defendants in these cases. Even the accusation of a crime, regardless of the evidence, can do substantial harm to your professional reputation and future employment.
An experienced attorney can often be instrumental in minimizing these associated penalties and fines, saving the defendant thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. An experienced attorney can also help work out reasonable payment plans that actually allow for the defendant to pay the damages back over a reasonable time period, while at the same time keeping the defendant out of jail or prison.
Pre-trial preparation is one of the keys to the successful defense of theft charges. Oftentimes, experts in computer forensics or handwriting can tip the scales in your favor, so your defense team needs to have the resources to thoroughly prepare for combat with the prosecution.
Theft crime cases are often won or lost based on pre-trial preparation. Your defense team must have the time and expertise to conduct its own investigation of your case.
Theft crimes tend to be easier to negotiate in terms of plea discussions than violent crimes or sex offenses. Although we always prepare for trial, our seasoned attorneys are especially skilled at negotiation techniques. We will always strive to present you with the best potential negotiated resolution possible, knowing that it is your choice whether to take a deal or go to trial.
Whether you elect to resolve your case without trial or to go to trial, the most important factors in a theft case are that your case is fully prepared and you are enabled to make a fully informed choice. It is your case and your future, so mounting a defense requires a team, not just a single attorney.
Theft crimes tend to have financial ramifications in the event that you suffer a conviction. Fines and restitution are often mandatory, and an experienced attorney can guide and advise you from a financial perspective how to lessen the impact of these collateral consequences.
