UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF THEFT CRIMES

American criminal law is nuanced and complex. As a result, various crimes that seem fairly similar may be treated very differently by the courts. It is therefore important that if you are charged with a crime, you seek the guidance of an experienced criminal law attorney who can both explain your charges to you and advocate as successfully as possible on your behalf.

For example, say that you are accused of stealing something. Your attorney should be able to explain to you which theft crime or crime you have been accused of committing. Depending on the specific circumstances surrounding your alleged crime, you may face different potential penalties than you would had your circumstances been changed only a little bit.

In popular culture, burglary, theft and robbery are often treated as simply a crime involving “stealing.” However, the courts treat these crimes quite differently. In general, theft is the basic crime of taking property from another without permission. To be convicted of this crime, it must be generally proven that you intended to permanently deprive someone of their property.

When you use fear or physical force to commit a theft, you can be accused and convicted of robbery. As a result, robbery is often considered to be a more serious crime than theft is.

Finally, burglaries do not require theft. They do require however that you unlawfully enter a business, home or other physical structure with the intent to commit some kind of unlawful activity inside that the structure you have entered.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
