In Indiana, the crime of theft involves the unlawful taking of property that belongs to another. The punishment for theft can be classified as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending upon the value of the item or items taken. For a felony conviction, the crime can include prison time.
If you’ve been charged with theft, it is in your best interest to retain an experienced criminal lawyer as soon as possible.
With our clients, we work to understand the circumstances surrounding the alleged theft so that we can prepare a strong defense based upon the evidence of their case. We fight vigorously against the prosecution’s efforts to seek conviction.
In some instances, the prosecution may offer a deal to plead guilty. If this occurs, we provide strategic advice for clients as to whether such a plea deal may be in their best interests. If clients wish for us to proceed in this manner, we will seek to obtain for them the best plea agreement possible.
If an acceptable plea agreement is not presented, or if our clients wish to go to trial, we will work zealously to preserve their innocence.
We offer a no obligation, free consult, so that you may learn more about our services and so that we can learn about the facts and circumstances of the matter. If you have been charged with the crime of theft, call us and we can set up a time to meet with you in your convenience.
