Providing Criminal Defense Against Theft Charges Since 1993
A theft crime is often a crime of opportunity. Property left unguarded is an easy target. If the temptation is there, some people find it difficult to resist that temptation. Even though an individual is not harmed by a theft crime, it does not mean that you won’t go to jail for a conviction.
Even petit larceny or shoplifting can create significant problems when a conviction is on your record. A conviction can make it harder to get a job, rent an apartment or get promoted at work. For college students, a conviction could mean the loss of a scholarship or other privileges.
At DeRoberts Law Firm, attorney Jeffrey DeRoberts will strenuously defend against any theft charges to make sure a minor inconvenience doesn’t turn into a major problem. Since 1993, we have been providing vigorous criminal defense for those charged with misdemeanor petit theft, shoplifting charges, grand theft larceny and other property crimes.
If you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony theft, we would like to help you. Free initial consultation. Call our Syracuse theft defense attorney day or night at 315-479-6445.
New York Shoplifting Defense Lawyer
Perhaps the most common theft crime is shoplifting, which can range from an 8-year-old picking up candy from a convenience store to an adult taking a leather jacket. If you or one of your children has been arrested for shoplifting, we would like to help. As with other crimes, we will leave no stone unturned as we examine every shred of evidence, the arrest or search and seizure, the store security procedures and the witness testimony.
The prosecution is often overworked and may have a hole in their case. If there is a hole in their case, we will work to find it. Theft crimes, in addition to shoplifting, include:
- Credit card theft
- Grand theft
- Identity theft (stolen IDs)
- Motor vehicle theft (grand theft auto)
- Petit larceny (theft of property less than $1,000)
