Downey Theft Defense Attorney
Robbery, Burglary, Shoplifting, Carjacking and Other Theft Crimes in Downey
Theft crimes take many forms and can result in serious legal consequences in cases of conviction. Even if property or funds were not successfully obtained in an attempted theft or scheme constructed for such a purpose, severe penalties can still apply. The specific penalties imposed can vary depending on the type of offense, its magnitude and other specific circumstances, the amount and type of money or property stolen and whether you have any prior convictions. Certain theft offenses may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. This is an important distinction as it can mean the difference between relatively little or no jail time and years of imprisonment and cancellation of certain civil rights. In California, the "three strikes law" means you must receive life in prison for a third felony conviction. Don't let your future be ripped away - talk to a Downey criminal lawyer immediately if you have been charged with any theft crime, such as:
- Breaking and entering
- Petty theft
- Grand theft
- Grand theft auto
- Receiving stolen property
- Identity theft
