Theft Crime Defenses

Our Marietta criminal defense lawyers have logged thousands of hours refining the skills and strategies needed to effectively defend against theft crime allegations. We understand the severity of these charges and know that the potential penalties you face can be life-altering.

Aside from fines and terms of imprisonment, you also face a criminal conviction on your record. Considered a "crime of moral turpitude," theft crimes are viewed distastefully by many prospective employees, landlords, and others who conduct background checks. Simply put, being convicted of a theft crime can place numerous limitations on your life and your future.

Defenses for theft crimes vary depending on which offense the defendant has been accused of committing. For example, if you are facing charges of burglary, you could have your charges and sentence reduced by proving that you had no intention of committing a crime inside a structure at the time you entered the building. Robbery charges could be fought by proving that the item(s) in question was offered or given to you and that you did not take them from the alleged victim.

As for shoplifting, it may be that you were simply distracted and forgot to pay, or that a store employee failed to remove a security tag from one of the items that you purchased. Whatever the case may be, our attorneys will work tirelessly to disprove the allegations against you and obtain a reduction or dismissal of your charges.
