California penal code for grand theft

Lawyer for defending against theft criminal chargesTheft crimes can be serious, depending upon the value of the property stolen and the record of the defendant.

Theft offenses are prosecuted aggressively by county district attorney’s offices.

A minor offense, such as shoplifting, should be taken seriously because it could result in:

  • deportation
  • loss of professional licenses
  • termination from employment
  • jail
  • fines
  • prison

Plus, being arrested for stealing in any form is not only frightening, it’s embarrassing!

If you are found guilty of theft in California, you face punishments that range from moderate to severe.

How you are penalized depends greatly on how effective your California defense attorney is.

An inexperienced attorney may not know how to petition the court for the least severe penalties possible for the crime you are convicted of.

However, an attorney’s main goal should not be to have the least severe sentence imposed – it should be to have the charges against you completely cleared!

If you are charged with a theft crime in Orange, Riverside, or San Bernardino County, it is important that you contact me immediately. 

I will work hard to increase the chances that the theft charges levied against you are dismissed entirely, so your record remains clean.

My goal is to provide you with the best defense possible in your case, no matter what type of theft crime you have been charged with, and I will do everything I can to protect your rights, liberties and freedoms under California law.

I have the skills and resources you need to face the California court system with confidence.
