What If I am Accused of Stealing?

Theft Crime is used widely to refer to a category of crimes involving the taking of another person's property without their permission. Shoplifting, Identity theft and Credit Card Fraud, Larceny, Robbery, Carjacking and Embezzlement are all theft crimes and carry harsh penalties. And because theft crimes are crimes of dishonesty, besides the penalties imposed by the Court, a conviction will impact your career prospects and future.

Theft crimes are crimes of dishonesty ranging from stealing something from Walmart to forcing someone out of their cars at gun point. They all have something in common, the taking of something that belongs to someone else. How you take the property and whether a weapon was used will determine the charges against you and the possible penalties.

All theft crimes have severe penalties and any conviction will have long-lasting consequences. A conviction will affect your career, your credit score, and even affect your gun rights.

Schmierlaw will examine the facts, challenge any witness, and make sure your Constitutional rights are protected. And when necessary, we will negotiate with the prosecutor to lessen the charge and reduce any impact a conviction will have on you.
