A Qualified Criminal Defense Attorney Can Get You Results In Theft Cases

Last updated on May 30, 2024

Theft includes a number of different criminal offenses related to taking the property of others through force or deception. A conviction for a theft crime carries stiff penalties, with either jail or prison time and fines, based upon the value of the item alleged to have been stolen.

If you are facing a charge for theft, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. At the Law Office of Dwight Burton, PLLC, our attorney formerly worked at the City of Canton Prosecutor’s Office, giving him unique insight into the inner workings of the criminal justice system, and the strategies employed by a prosecutor. This experience and knowledge can be a valuable asset to you in your case.

Examples Of Theft Crimes

Theft crimes range from minor infractions to serious felony offenses. In some cases, a person is charged with a theft crime with no knowledge that he or she had been involved in something illegal, such as cases involving the possession of stolen property. No matter what occurred, you have the right to defend yourself, and the most important issue at hand is to retain the services of a highly qualified criminal lawyer.

Some theft crimes include:

  • Armed robbery
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Counterfeiting
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgery
  • Fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Shoplifting
  • Passing bad checks
