Trusted Bronx Theft Charges Lawyer Ready to Defend You
Why are Theft Cases so Serious?
Theft cases are very serious cases because of the consequences that come with a criminal conviction for theft. Theft-related cases bear on the moral fiber of the person who stands accused. Theft convictions raise concerns about the morality of the convicted person. Those convicted of a theft charge will be branded as untrustworthy. As a result, theft-related convictions are the most important concern for employers and for those looking to adjust their legal status, the Department of Homeland Security.
If you or someone you care about has been charged with theft, it’s important to have an experienced and knowledgeable legal professional on your side. At The Law Offices of Jason A Steinberger, LLC, our team of dedicated Bronx theft charges attorneys has the skills and expertise necessary to help you navigate the complex legal system and fight for your rights.
What is the Difference Between Felony and Misdemeanor Theft Cases?
The main differences between theft-related Felony charges and theft-related Misdemeanor charges are the value of the property alleged to have been taken and the type of property taken. In NY, if a person is alleged to have taken property or possessed property that they did have lawful dominion over, and the value of the property exceeded $1,000, then he/she will be charged with a felony theft case. If the value is less than $1,000 then the person will be charged with a misdemeanor. Additionally, simply possessing certain property, like a credit card, may subject someone to Felony theft charges. Let a knowledgeable Bronx theft lawyer guide you.
Does it Help if I was Given a Desk Appearance Ticket for my Theft Case?
If you were issued a Desk Appearance Ticket, all that means is that the arresting police officer determined that you were not a flight risk. The prosecutor may still request bail at your arraignment. Additionally, the prosecutor may request a jail sentence at your arraignment or any time after. Do not make the mistake of assuming that because you were given a DAT or Desk Appearance Ticket your case is less serious.
