Theft and Property Crimes

Theft and other property crimes are among the most common form of criminal conduct. Theft crimes in Florida can range from a misdemeanor to a first-degree felony punishable by life in prison. Many factors are taken into account by the State Attorney’s Office when deciding what type of theft charge to prosecute, such as: What was the value of the property taken? Where was the property taken from? Was anyone harmed or threatened to be harmed during the theft? Was a weapon involved? Is this a first-time offender?

The prosecutor in your case has wide discretion in which charges to file. A knowledgeable theft crimes attorney can help convince the prosecutor to use that discretion in your favor. One way is by talking to the prosecutor before the case is filed. Your attorney may be able to negotiate other options for handling your case – including a reduction of the charge or even a dismissal if certain facts cannot be proven.
