Knowledgeable Missouri counselors handle a range of theft cases
There are many types of theft crimes, but they all involve taking someone's property. Theft charges vary based on the property's value, where it was taken, how it was acquired, and whether force was involved. Depending on the value of the property, it may be considered a misdemeanor or a felony. Shoplifting and pickpocketing are considered stealing. A burglary charge involves entering into or remaining unlawfully in a home or business with the intent to commit a crime therein. Embezzlement is charged against those who steal money that they have been entrusted with.
Robbery is a more serious charge, because it involves the use of force. These charges carry different penalties depending on various statutory factors. That's why it's important to seek skilled representation from an experienced defense attorney who knows the law and has defended clients on similar charges.
Proven defense attorneys challenge your theft charges
Those who have been charged with theft crimes in Missouri should not give up hope. Our attorneys will challenge the prosecution's evidence and police procedure to see whether your rights were violated during the investigation or your arrest. When possible, we will present evidence that establishes an alibi, proving that you were not at the scene of the crime when it was committed.
Defendants in theft cases often face the prospect of serious punishment. They may be forced to pay restitution to the person they are accused of stealing from. They may be sentenced to jail or prison, depending on the charge. No matter what charge you face, we are trial-tested advocates dedicated to providing the best possible defense under the circumstances.
