If you’ve been arrested and charged with theft in Arizona, it’s important that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Theft, robbery or home invasion charges should be taken very seriously as they carry heavy consequences for those convicted. Not only are the punishments harsh, but a theft conviction can also make life very difficult when it comes to finding work or even being admitted to schools.
Theft crimes in Arizona range from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies. Convictions of these crimes can lead to sentences that include time in jail as well as expensive fines and other penalties.
Theft Defense Attorney Kyle T. Green
I’ve spent years as a criminal defense attorney in Arizona and have the experience and confidence to represent you in your theft case. Before I was a defense attorney, I worked as a prosecutor, which gives me great insight into how Arizona will handle its case against you. My knowledge of the Arizona court system and strong negotiation skills have proven effective in the successful defense of many theft and robbery cases in the past.
Theft and Shoplifting Penalties
Many theft charges stem from shoplifting incidents. If you attempt to remove goods from a business without paying for them or attempt to pay less for something by tampering with the price tag, you can be charged with shoplifting. Even the smallest shoplifting crime carries a heavy potential sentence of up to six months in jail and three years of probation.
More serious shoplifting crimes, including those that involve firearms or any other goods valued at over $2,000 can be punished by up to three years in prison and fines of up to $150,000.
