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:
- Robbery and armed robbery
- Identity theft
- White collar crimes
- 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.
