Consequences of Theft Conviction
If you are convicted with theft charges, the consequences are often more serious than just jail time and fines. Justly or not, theft charges count against a person credibility and honesty. Many employers will not hire people who have a theft conviction; some employers fire people who receive a theft conviction; and, some schools are willing to expel students for the crime.
We know you are terrified about the charges you are facing, and we will work aggressively to try to prevent the conviction from appearing on your record. We challenge theft charges by asking questions such as:
What was your intent?
Is there any hard evidence?
Were there any witnesses?
