Being charged with a theft is serious. You might think that because it isn’t a violent crime that it won’t matter. The fact of the matter is that you have to think about how a conviction on theft charges might impact you.
As you are thinking of the possible implications, you might find that you are impacted in more ways that you thought. We can help you formulate a defense strategy that might help you minimize the penalties that you are going to have to live with for the rest of your life.
A theft charge is unique in that it has to do with taking someone else’s property, which is an asset management issue for businesses. Even if you didn’t steal from a business, a potential employer might look at the charge on your criminal record and decide that you are too much of a risk to hire. This means that you might find it difficult to get a job when you need one to support yourself.
Thinking of defense strategies that you might utilize has to be done on an individual level. You can’t try to shoehorn your case to fit a defense that worked for someone else. Instead, you have to work to address the points that the prosecution is going to use in your case. It can be hard to differentiate this, but we can help you come up with a plan.
As you are moving through the court system, you might realize that you have to make some tough choices. Be sure that you evaluate each one carefully. We can answer any questions you might have so that you are making informed decisions.
