Defending All Types Of Theft Offenses
Being convicted of a theft offense can have a serious impact on your future. Theft offenses are broken up into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor theft occurs when property with a value of $500.00 or less has been taken, and a felony theft occurs when property with a value over $500.00 has been taken. It is important to note that theft by shoplifting has a different set of rules. With shoplifting, a misdemeanor occurs when property with a value of $300.00 or less has been taken, and it becomes a felony when the property taken has a value over $300.00.
In addition to creating a criminal history, theft offenses can hinder your chance of getting a respectable job because employers are reluctant to hire individuals who they believe are untrustworthy.
Theft offenses include robbery, shoplifting, forgery, burglary, armed robbery, embezzlement, fraud, and more.
