Charged with theft crimes? You deserve vigorous representation

Facing criminal charges can be a frightening experience. Many people feel understandably confused by their charges, and Massachusetts' police are often not quick to help clear up any questions defendants might have. This is especially true with theft crimes, which cover a somewhat broad range of charges, all of which can have different legal implications.

Theft-related charges may be either misdemeanors or felonies. While both are serious criminal matters, felonies carry the possibility of hefty fines and jail time if convicted. This can apply to any of the following charges, all of which are considered theft crimes under Massachusetts state law:

  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Petty or grand larceny
  • Breaking and entering

When faced with these kinds of charges, it is important to remember that attending officers are typically not on your side. More often than not they are searching for something that may be used to build a case against you rather than trying to answer any questions you may have. If you, like many people, mistakenly feel that theft-related charges are not that serious, you might be more susceptible to being taken advantage of by an overzealous police officer.

No matter which type of theft crimes charge you might be facing, timely action is often essential to securing a favorable outcome. Vigorous and experienced representation can help as you prepare the most solid foundation possible for your defense.
