Aggressive Theft Crime Attorney
If you are facing a theft crime charge in Arizona – regardless of the type of theft or the monetary value allegedly stolen – you are facing a number of potentially grave, life-changing consequences. Not only is there the immediate danger of penalties like imprisonment, there’s also the risk of the long-term drawback of having a permanent stain on your record.
A criminal record can keep you from landing jobs, securing housing, and getting loans. To keep your theft crime charge from resulting in both immediate and long-term consequences, enlisting the aid of a dedicated criminal lawyer is essential.
Theft Laws Explained
Though mistakenly dismissed by many as a victimless offense, theft is considered to be a very serious crime by Arizona courts. Theft crimes are penalized harshly, with sentences ranging from fines to imprisonment. Depending on the nature of the crime, theft can be considered either a felony or a misdemeanor in Arizona, and the severity of the penalty is typically determined by the value of what has been stolen.
Theft crimes can also be conducted through coercion or other deceptive means. Unlike robbery, however, theft typically occurs without another person being present or threatened. If violence or force is used to take something from another individual, it becomes a robbery crime.
