Theft & Property Crimes Archives

Don't neglect your defense on property crime charges

Anyone who is facing a property crime charge shouldn't make the mistake of thinking that the case is minor matter. Even a vandalism conviction could have a negative impact on your life. One way that this might happen is that future employees might see the conviction on a background check and assume that you aren't going to be able to protect company assets and use them correctly.

Credit card theft and fraud charges are serious matters

When you think of a theft crime, you might automatically consider burglary or shoplifting. But there is another type that you might not think about — credit card theft or fraud. This charge can be very serious, but you should know what it entails because there is a chance that you might unknowingly break the law.

Don't ruin your holidays with accusations of retail theft

The holidays are a time when most people want to give their loved ones gifts. Unfortunately, not everyone has the money or credit available to treat the people on their list to the gifts they want to give them. Remember that trying to sneak merchandise out of stores without paying the full retail price that the merchant is asking can lead to you facing criminal charges.

One important element in theft cases can make a difference

Borrowing something from someone is usually done with the intention of returning it when you are finished. But sometimes, life happens. Maybe you forgot to return the item. Does this mean that you are guilty of theft? Not usually — but it doesn't mean that you can't be accused.

Theft crimes can't be viewed as minor matters

Theft crime charges are serious matters that demand immediate attention. These matters are sometimes viewed as minor because there usually isn't any physical harm to the alleged victims in the case. Unfortunately, this misconception might lead to a defendant being unprepared for the court hearings.

Theft crimes can impact your career options

Businesses have a duty to protect their assets. This duty might mean that individuals who have been convicted of theft charges might have trouble finding a job. There are several factors that might come into the picture in these cases. It is imperative that you are thinking about all of this as we work on your defense strategy.

Many theft and property crimes demand attention to details

We recently discussed some of the specifics of arson and what it means to be facing a charge for this matter. When it comes to property crimes, arson is only one of the possible criminal charges you might face. No matter what type of a property crime or theft you are facing, we are here to help you find out what you can do about your defense.

Arson: Property crime with serious consequences
