Theft Cases Defended by Florida Lawyer
Handling Your Theft Charges
Theft crimes range from the very severe crimes such as grand theft to the less severe crimes of shoplifting. There can be crimes which are committed at work or in corporations such as misappropriating property or funds, stealing property, or committing fraud. Depending on the manner in which a crime is carried out, as well as whether it is violent or non-violent, will most often determine the particular penalties that a defendant may face if convicted.
Some theft crimes, such as robbery or burglary, are usually committed with some type of force or violence. Shoplifting, on the other hand, is carried out in a hidden manner with the hope of not being noticed. Then there are the more deceptive crimes, like fraud which involves deceit to carry out the offense. Regardless of the type of theft committed, they are all considered crimes and can have a serious impact on your future if you are convicted.
Since you may be in danger of facing serious criminal penalties and even up to years in prison if you are convicted, you must act immediately to contact a criminal defense attorney. The worst you can do is to fail to act, thus possibly resulting in an unfavorable outcome to your case and extensive jail time that otherwise might not have been necessary.
