Burglary, Robbery, Shoplifting, Petty Theft, Grand Theft, Carjacking and Other Theft Crimes

You will be charged with the crime of theft, no matter whether you shoplifted a pair of shoes or stole a car. There are varying degrees of theft crimes, misdemeanors or felonies, with widely varying penalties. The consequences for a theft conviction can mean jail or prison and steep fines. A criminal record will be a deterrent for employment, housing and education opportunities. After an arrest, it's important to contact an Anchorage criminal defense attorney.

Theft crimes take many forms. They can be either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the exact nature of the crime. Even shoplifting can escalate from a minor crime to a felony if the value of what was stolen was over $500. Some theft crimes are non-violent, such as credit card theft, internet crimes and embezzlement, while others have a violent or threat of violence component, such as robbery. These factors will be integral to how serious the crime is and the penalties that accompany a conviction.

Anchorage Theft Crime Defense Attorney

Just because you have been accused of a crime does not mean you are guilty. Sometimes arrests come about due to misunderstandings, such as what a witness thought he saw. Other times a simple, innocent error could lead to embezzlement charges. Defending a theft crime requires us to thoroughly investigate the facts, including carefully interviewing witnesses.

We place special attention to every detail when putting together a strong defense, as this can make the difference between an acquittal and a conviction. Our defense could also take the form of effective plea negotiations, or result in reduced charges. You can always be assured you will receive one-on-one representation from our firm. When you call us for a free case evaluation, you will find out your best options. Don't delay, as time is of the essence.
