Theft Defense Attorney in Florida

Theft refers to a wide variety of criminal offenses that involve taking wrongfully taking money or property from someone else without permission. Taking of property can happen in many different sets of circumstances, which can range from taking an item of little value from a store to fraudulently embezzling millions of dollars from a large corporation. Because every theft offense can vary so widely, the potential consequences of theft crimes can also vary widely—from probation to many years in prison. Because each theft-related case is different, you should always retain a criminal defense attorney who has a thorough understanding of theft laws and how to defend against such charges. Stephen G. Cobb is a Board Certified criminal defense specialist who has defended numerous theft cases throughout his career. If you have been arrested, call our office today to discuss how we can help you. The following are only some examples of different variations of theft crimes in Florida:

  • Petit (often called “petty”) theft
  • Grand Theft (often referred to as “Grand Larceny)
  • Grand Theft of a firearm
  • Dealing in Stolen Property
  • Retail Theft (Shoplifting)
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft from an employer
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Theft of copper or other metals
  • Failure to return leased property
  • Theft of utility services
  • Robbery (which involves violence or threats in the commission of the theft)

Theft crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, generally depending on the nature of the theft and the value of the property obtained. Even misdemeanor convictions can lead to probation, fines, and other penalties that can substantially affect your life. If you are facing any type of theft-related charges—or any other type of criminal charge—your freedom and finances are on the line. Even probation can substantially limit where you can go and can involve costly fees, so you always want to make sure you are receiving the best possible outcome in your case. Please do not hesitate to call the Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC at 850-423-0035 today for assistance.
