Fort Lauderdale Grand Theft Lawyer
Have you been arrested for grand theft?
The penalties that are assigned to
theft crimes are based upon the value of the stolen item(s) and the manner in which
they are stolen. For example, a person robbing a jewelry store by holding
the owner at gunpoint will undoubtedly face harsher penalties than a person
who hides a shirt in their backpack and walks out of a department store.
When an individual steals property that is valued at $300.00 or more,
they will be charged with grand theft.
Grand theft is a felony crime that can result in state prison time and
other strict penalties as well. If you are under investigation for grand
theft, or if you have been arrested for this crime, you must contact a
criminal defense attorney who has a thorough understanding of criminal law.
