Orange County Financial Crimes Attorney
In the State of California, crimes of robbery and theft are dealt with harshly. A conviction for any of these crimes can be penalized with a jail or prison term, fines, probation, and more.
This is why if you have been charged with any money crime, it is imperative that you speak at once with an experienced criminal defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Todd Landgren.
When you work with us, our attorneys will investigate the charge against you and will fight aggressively for a dismissal of charges or a not guilty verdict.
What Are The Penalties For Theft?
Burglary, robbery, and theft are three different crimes in the State of California, but a conviction on any of these charges could send you to jail or prison.
A grand larceny (grand theft) conviction can send someone to prison for three years if it is charged as a felony; if it is charged as a misdemeanor, a conviction can mean a year in jail.
Petty larceny (petty theft) is a misdemeanor. A petty larceny conviction can send an offender to jail for six months, and a convicted offender may also be fined $1,000.
What Are The Penalties For Robbery And Burglary?
First-degree burglary is a felony in this state. A conviction may be punished with six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
A felony conviction for second-degree burglary can send the offender to prison for three years. A conviction for misdemeanor second-degree burglary can send an offender to jail for one year.
A first-degree robbery conviction may be penalized with a nine-year prison term. A conviction on a second-degree robbery charge may be penalized with a five-year term in prison.
Theft-related crimes in California also include embezzlement, fraud, identity theft, and possessing stolen property. Could you be wrongly accused of committing one of these crimes?
The answer is yes. In fact, the innocent are wrongly accused far too frequently in the State of California.
You may have sincerely believed that the allegedly “stolen” property was yours. You may have been wrongly identified as a thief or as a shoplifter by a confused or mistaken eyewitness.
And sadly, sometimes theft, robbery, and burglary charges are entirely fabricated.
Before you can be convicted of one of these crimes, the state must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If you are charged with any of these crimes, do not try to act as your own attorney. Too much will be at stake to take any chances.
Instead, reach out to an experienced criminal defense attorney you can trust.
