There are many theft-related crimes that result in a variety of penalties if someone is convicted. The following are some of the more common offenses:
- Petty theft
- Grand theft
If you’re accused of a theft crime, if you’ve been arrested, or if you’re currently only under investigation, you need to speak with an attorney before you say anything to the police. They will use anything you say against you and sometimes they will take something you said and make it sound like you meant something else. Often you mean one thing and the police and prosecutors can make it sound like you were admitting to wrongdoing.
If you’ve already talked to the police without a lawyer, please don’t say anything else that may incriminate you. Call us first. You have rights and you cannot be forced to talk without a lawyer present.
The constitution guarantees that the State must prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt and they will use things you said to try to prove their case. Through my 27+ years of criminal law practice, I understand what it takes to make sure you get your fair trial and to make sure that you aren’t convicted of a crime you did not commit or that the State cannot prove.
We will do everything we can to protect your freedom, your good name and your future. Call us at (760) 631-5151 for a free consultation.
