Theft Crimes

 

In the current economy, theft crimes are on the rise. The government has responded by aggressively prosecuting individuals charged with shoplifting, burglary, and other theft crimes. Even a misdemeanor theft crime conviction can have serious implications.

If you have been charged with a theft crime, contact Bird & Van Dyke in Stockton or Tracy, California. Attorney Bird is a former prosecutor who aggressively and passionately defends clients against criminal charges.

Effective Defense Against All Theft Crimes

Bird & Van Dyke defends people charged with a range of theft crimes:

  • Petty theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Armed robbery
  • Breaking and entering
  • Auto theft
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Check fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Identity theft

Even seemingly minor theft crimes can have serious consequences. Petty theft, for example, is a misdemeanor charge that doesn’t seem like a major offense. However, a second petty theft charge is considered a felony. If convicted, the offender could face significant prison time. It is important to fight theft charges no matter how minor they may seem.

Immigration Consequences

A theft crime conviction can have serious effects on immigration status. A non-U.S. citizen who is charged with burglary, shoplifting, or another theft crime may face deportation.

If you are a non-U.S. citizen who has been charged with a theft crime, it is important to consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer soon. We can help you navigate the legal system when criminal law and immigration law overlap. We will help you fight charges and seek your desired outcome.
