Theft Charges Could Mean Real Consequences

Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you could be facing county or state prison time, as well as a potential felony conviction. The grading of your theft charge (felony versus misdemeanor) will be based upon factors, such as, prior theft convictions and the monetary value of the item(s) allegedly stolen. These factors (among other things) will also impact that amount of jail time you could face.

Further, when you face a possible theft crimes conviction, the "conviction" alone is something you need to worry about. A "conviction" occurs as a result of a guilty plea or finding of guilt and will become part of your permanent criminal record. While this is true with any crime, the nature of this crime - theft - can have an even greater impact on your livelihood and your future because a conviction for a theft charge directly and negatively reflects on your character for honesty and trustworthiness. In today's economy, this could potentially result in an insurmountable road block in your employment future.

When your future is at stake, you need help.
