Los Angeles Theft Crime Defense Attorney
What are the Penalties for Theft Crimes in California?
Being accused of a theft crime can be very scary, especially if you are put on the spot, such as in the case of shoplifting. Some people believe that confessing to a shoplifting accusation or apologizing, they won’t face prosecution. However, the police may attempt to coerce a confession from you, so that they can proceed with criminal prosecution. At Law Offices of Scott R. Spindel, we highly recommend speaking with a Los Angeles theft crime attorney before making any statements to law enforcement.
We handle the defense of all types of theft crimes, including:
You could be restricted from working in certain occupations and your personal reputation could be permanently damaged in addition to the following penalties:
- Jail time
If you are convicted, the consequences could be significant and affect your life for years to come. We understand that every criminal case is unique and therefore take the time to conduct a thorough examination of the facts and evidence surrounding your arrest. You can rely on us to tailor your defense to your needs and individual case.
Aggressively Defending Theft Crimes
When our Los Angeles criminal defense attorney takes the defense of a theft crime, our goals are to keep you out of jail and to help you avoid a criminal record.
Whenever possible, we seek a complete acquittal. However, when an acquittal is not possible, we use our skill and experience to fight to minimize the penalties involved. From carefully reviewing all aspects of the police investigation and arrest to looking through the evidence that was obtained, we look for any violations or mishandling of your case. This could include lack of probable cause for any search or seizure or finding that you were not advised of your rights before you made any statements to law enforcement officers.
