Riverside Theft Attorney
Hire a Team With a Track Record of Results
Theft crimes include several 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 charged as 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.

Possible Defenses in Theft Crimes Cases
In matters involving theft, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused committed the offense.
Depending on the circumstances, several defenses may be raised to cast doubt on the evidence, including, but not limited to:
- The defendant was with another who actually committed the theft but was unaware the offense occurred.
- In a shoplifting case, the defendant may have left a store and accidentally forgot to pay for the merchandise.
- The defendant may be in possession of stolen property but was unaware that it was illegally obtained.
