A conviction for theft will make it very hard for you to find a job in certain professions. My firm understands what’s at stake, and we work diligently to minimize the impact of these charges.
Depending on what was taken and how, you can be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony on a metro Charlotte theft case. Maybe you forgot to pay for an item before exiting a shop, or store security thought you were concealing an item with the intent to steal. Maybe you stole from a private citizen, and the alleged victim felt threatened because they thought you had a weapon. A conviction for any type of a theft charge can carry many consequences, including lost employment or educational opportunities. My job is to keep the door of opportunity open for you, even if you admitted to store personnel and police that you used poor judgment and committed the crime.
Because theft charges are very fact-specific, I’ll completely examine every piece of evidence against you and attack the prosecution’s case from every possible angle. I’ll raise genuine questions as to whether a crime was committed, and if the correct suspect was detained and placed under arrest. If you’ve been charged with a theft crime in the Charlotte metropolitan area, contact my firm.
