Handling Theft Crime Defense For Asheville And Surrounding Communities

Theft crimes encompass a broad range of criminal activities, from shoplifting and petty theft to grand larceny. If you have been charged with a theft crime in North Carolina, it is important to hire a skilled defense attorney before accepting a plea bargain, even if it seems like a generous offer by the prosecution.

Your future employment opportunities could depend upon the outcome.

The Long-Term Consequences Of Theft Crime Convictions

Penalties for theft crimes vary, depending on a number of factors, including the amount of alleged stolen property and the defendant's criminal history. If convicted of theft, you will not only face criminal penalties such as fines and incarceration, but end up with a mark on your criminal record that will haunt you in the future. Employers are unlikely to hire people with criminal records, especially prospective employees with theft convictions on their records.
