The Right Defense For Your Case
Degrees for theft charges vary depending on the value of the taken property in question. For example, theft of property worth more than $2,000 is typically a second-degree felony. However, if the stolen property is a firearm, the crime is a first-degree felony. The finer details make a difference, and penalties can vary significantly.
There are ways to defend a theft charge. Sometimes these cases come down to a matter of misunderstanding between the defendant and the original property owner. Defendants also may have never intended to permanently keep the property and believe they had permission to have it in their possession.
