Understanding Theft Offenses

Theft is the intentional taking of someone else's property or money without their permission, with the intent to keep it. From small petty thefts to grand theft auto, these situations are taken seriously to state and federal law enforcement. Depending on the monetary value of the possession, the penalty will range in severity. The smaller theft offenses can often be considered misdemeanors if there were no threats involved and if it was not a violent crime.

Have you been charged with a theft crime?

Theft is a very serious criminal act. If you or a loved one has been charged with a criminal offense related to theft, you could be facing penalties of a serious nature. Get the assistance of a lawyer from our firm who can represent your case and act on your behalf. You can face penalties of up to 30 years in prison if you do not handle the situation efficiently. Depending on specific circumstances, such as the location of the theft, prior criminal records, and the type of theft involved, your criminal charges can bring about various penalties.

Types of Theft Crimes

You can be charged for a theft crime for instances of shoplifting, burglary, robbery, grand theft auto, embezzlement, breaking and entering, and felony thefts. If these acts were performed to federal property, it will also be considered a federal crime and you may have more severe penalties attached. These can even result in felonies which can follow you for the rest of your life. Any future background checks can bring up negative results and cause you to lose your job, school admission, or housing opportunity. We advise against taking unnecessary risks during this time. Hire a strong lawyer who can defend your case. Your future is important to us. At Musa Obregon & Associates, we can offer defense that can get you results. Call today!
