Theft and robbery charges can be applied to a wide range of actions, including everything from the theft of physical property to money to a person’s identity. In an effort to deter such actions from occurring in the future, law enforcement officials are often extremely aggressive in the way they treat and prosecute those accused of theft or robbery offenses. Unfortunately, this often results in false accusations, infringements on the rights and freedoms of those accused of such crimes, and unfair punishments for those convicted.
Whether you're being charged for the first time or as a repeat offender, charges of theft and robbery can have serious short-term and long-term consequences for you and your loved ones. If convicted of a theft or robbery crime, your future can be tarnished, and people may hesitate to trust you again. Conviction of a theft or robbery crime can destroy your future ability to gain meaningful employment, and it may even impact some of your fundamental rights. However, you can help yourself by getting an experienced attorney to represent you.
