Riverside Theft Crime Lawyer

Criminal Defense Attorney for Theft Offenses

Theft crimes include a number of different offenses. They are crimes in which an individual is intentionally deprived of property by another without that individual's consent. A theft crime may be considered a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon the value of the stolen items, and/or if a weapon was used during the commission of the crime. If someone has been convicted of theft, it may be very difficult for that individual to apply for employment, keep a good job, get a mortgage, rent an apartment, secure credit or obtain a professional license.

With so much at stake, it is important to have experienced legal counsel representing you in your theft crime case. A knowledgeable Riverside criminal defense attorney from Grech & Packer is extremely skilled in defending both adults and juveniles for all kinds of theft crimes, including:

  • Burglary
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Shoplifting
  • Larceny
  • Identity theft
  • White collar crimes
  • Embezzlement
  • Check forgery
  • Misuse of public assistance

Penalties for Theft Crimes

Penalties for theft crimes can include incarceration, court ordered counseling, community service, harsh fines, and restitution to the person the property was stolen from. As being convicted of theft can follow you for the rest of your life, we understand how important it is to pursue a vigorous defense for you. We may argue that you were with another who actually committed the theft but you were not aware that a theft was occurring. For a shoplifting offense, you may have left a store and accidentally forgot to pay for the merchandise. You may be the possessor of stolen property but were not aware that it was illegally obtained.

We will use our skill as Certified Specialists in Criminal Law and Attorney Grech's experience as a former prosecutor to pick apart the prosecution's case. We will fight to get your charges reduced or dismissed in order to protect your rights and freedom.
