Theft Crimes

Even a seemingly minor theft crime can lead to serious consequences. For example, retail theft may be charged as burglary if the prosecutor can prove that you intended to commit theft before entering the building. If you are charged with burglary, you face the prospect of prison with no opportunity for probation.

The underlying point is that any theft crime charge can quickly spiral into more serious allegations when defendants do not have skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyers by their side.
