We Fight To Reduce or Dismiss Your Theft Charges
Florida statutes surrounding theft lend themselves to many definitions. Two principal elements of a theft crime are:
- The defendant knew the property was not his or hers, and
- The intention was to deprive the rightful owner of their property rights.
Frequently the value of an item can determine whether the charge is a misdemeanor or felony. Reductions or case dismissals can occur upon challenging the value or ownership and possession of stolen goods.
In other cases, where the threat or use of force is alleged, or when there is an accusation of using a weapon in the commission of a property crime, more serious charges may apply. The experienced criminal defense attorneys at ZAGERLAW, P.A., have successfully resolved hundreds of these cases and will diligently defend you, also. Contact us now for a free consultation.
