Miami, OK Theft Crime Lawyer
Fighting to Protect the Rights of Clients in Joplin, MO
Theft is defined as the taking of someone else’s property with the intention of depriving them of it. Depending on the value of the alleged stolen property, you could face either misdemeanor or felony sentencing, resulting in huge fines and possible jail time.
With a criminal conviction on your record, it can become difficult to find employment, housing, and loan opportunities. At J. Ken Gallon, Attorney at Law, our Miami theft attorney can help. We have handled thousands of criminal cases, and we know how to help you get through this difficult situation.
Advocacy for All Theft Crimes
For many people, they are not even aware they might have committed theft until charges are brought against them. You may have received what you thought was a gift or bestowal only to find that the other person didn’t agree to permanently separate from their property. In these cases, simply returning the property is often enough to get the charges reduced or dropped. In other cases, it is crucial that you work with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you tell your side of the story.
We may be able to help you prove that:
- The property belonged to you in the first place: If your ownership is in question, we can build a case that examines and questions the legitimacy of the claims made by your accuser. We can help you locate proof and other evidence to move forward with your case.
- You were intoxicated during the alleged crime: As theft involves the intent to deprive the owner of the property in question, showing that you had no criminal intent can help the judge see things from your point of view. We can help you explain what happened and how you ended up here.
- You did not know you were stealing: It may be possible that you forgot to return something you borrowed. We understand that this is a much different thing than criminal intent, and we are prepared to fight for your freedom.
