Theft is a serious type of criminal case. Any time you’re convicted of theft, future employers and other people will view a theft conviction in a negative light. Therefore, it is important that you have an Attorney that will investigate the issue of whether the state has met its burden of proof to achieve a potential conviction.
Part of the burden prove includes whether the prosecution can prove that you knowingly and intentionally took or removed property from a person or business.
As a practicing criminal defense lawyer in Central Florida, I can certainly help. There are many alternatives to handling criminal theft cases other and you’ve been convicted. This may include a diversion program and other alternatives in handling your case.
The difference between grand theft and petit theft in the state of Florida is that from a monetary amount, to be a Grand Theft crime, the value of the property allegedly taken must be greater than $300.00. However, there are other elements that the prosecution may allege to increase the criminal charge to grand theft as opposed to petit theft when the case involves the taking of something other than money.
When an individual is charged with a Theft Crime, or any other criminal offense, it is important to be well informed regarding the charges against you, your legal rights, options which may be available to you, viable defense strategies, and if the case goes to trial, aggressive defense of your legal rights and freedoms.
