Burglary, robbery, embezzlement and theft crimes defense from Cooper Law Offices
Theft crimes can take many forms, from shoplifting and passing bad checks, to grand theft and burglary. But, theft crimes do have one thing in common: they tend to increase in number in times of economic hardship. With unemployment and bankruptcy rates near record highs, theft crimes are also more common. Bad and misinformed decisions can have lasting consequences when it comes to theft crimes. Whether your theft charge was the result of a bad decision or a false accusation, it is vital that you take the charge very seriously.
A theft crime conviction can severely limit your ability to obtain employment, particularly in careers that require a state license or bond. Beyond those special circumstances, employers generally do not like to hire people with theft crimes on their record, no matter the specific type of theft crime, because they see a theft conviction as a sign of dishonesty and fear possible future theft. Because of these lasting effects on your ability to gain employment it is important to obtain the best possible defense if you are charged with any kind of theft crime.
