Your Best Defense for Alleged Theft Crimes

Felony and misdemeanor theft offenses are taken very seriously by prosecutors and judges. Because these cases do not involve drugs or violence, people often take for granted that punishments will not include jail or prison time or other serious consequences. Underestimating the severity of the potential direct and collateral consequences is a mistake. Financial crimes in the United States are a heavy focus of law enforcement activity, and economic crimes have significantly impacted the economy. Prosecutors and judges make every possible effort not only to punish defendants convicted of theft crimes; they seek to make an example of them. You need the best defense attorneys for theft-related crimes when your liberty, family, employment, and reputation are on the line. There is no room for error.

What crimes are “theft crimes”?

There are various misdemeanor and felony theft crimes in Michigan. Although these crimes are nonviolent, it would be a mistake to assume that judges and prosecutors take them lightly. It takes a strong defense lawyer who routinely defends clients on theft crimes to put up the fight necessary to achieve the best possible outcome.

What are the possible consequences of a theft crime conviction? What will likely happen?

Any time someone is charged with a felony or misdemeanor, jail or prison is always possible. Misdemeanor offenses carry a maximum possible sentence of up to a year in jail and two (2) years of probation. Felony charges are punishable by a maximum sentence of greater than a year in the Michigan Department of Corrections and five (5) years probation. Some theft crime felony offenses have a maximum sentence of up to two (2) years, and others can carry a potential life sentence.

What will likely happen? First of all, don’t give up hope. There is always the legitimate possibility that a great theft crimes defense attorney will be able to get your charges dismissed or reduced. In some cases, an outright acquittal may be possible. If there is no way to avoid a conviction, you will need your lawyer to do everything humanly possible to get the sentence as low as possible. Getting a lenient sentence means low or no jail, probation, fines, costs, fees, and terms and conditions of probation. Every case is different, and the only way to give you more specific information would be to talk with one of the highly experienced and effective attorneys at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C.
