Columbus Petty Theft Lawyer

Fighting Petty Theft Charges

The theft of an item valued at under $500 will usually result in charges of petty theft, a misdemeanor offense. If you are found guilty of the charges, you will be facing penalties such as:

  • Probation
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Victim restitution
  • Community service

Even if the value of the item taken was only a few dollars, a conviction for a misdemeanor offense will result in a criminal record that will be a hindrance when you apply for certain types of jobs and professional licenses. A Columbus theft crime attorney can review your case and possible defense options that may help you avoid a conviction. Representation by a qualified lawyer is important in any criminal case, and can give you a better chance of a successful outcome to your situation.

Petty Theft Attorney in Columbus

You can be charged with a theft crime if you deprive someone of their property without their consent or willingness. Less serious theft offenses such as petty theft will usually be charged as a first degree misdemeanor. If the property was stolen from an elderly or disabled person, or the item taken was a dangerous drug or firearm, you may be charged with a felony.

The Koffel Law Firm is a nationally recognized criminal defense firm that provides legal advice and representation to individuals charged with theft crimes. They use their many years of experience when counseling you on your options and preparing your defense.
