Theft Charges

Even in theft cases that seem cut-and-dried, there’s often a lot more to the story than what the police or the prosecutor knows. When you’ve been charged with theft, we focus our defense on our own investigation of the alleged offense.


While a theft charge is only a misdemeanor, it’s one of the most serious misdemeanors a person can be charged with. It’s considered a “crime of moral turpitude”, which means that a conviction can impact your ability to get housing and employment in the future. When we defend you, we make sure that our social work team gets to know you and your background, so we can show the prosecutor that you don’t deserve a theft conviction on your record.
