Minnesota State laws refer to theft as the stealing of identity, property, and services. The charges can be classified as misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, or felony-level offenses depending on what was stolen, the amount that was stolen, when and how.
The long-lasting consequences of being charged and convicted of theft will have an impact on your personal and professional lives. Your record will also impact the level of the charges if it is a first-time offense or recurring charges.
Regardless of the charges you are facing, you must seek legal advice and representation. Your attorney will investigate with you all the aspects of the charges, the crime, and the plan of action for your defense.
At Arneson Law Office, we represent all levels of theft accusations. We specialize in shoplifting and felony-level representations.
Shoplifting representation: as one of the most common crimes in Minessota, shoplifting charges vary from misdemeanor to felony, all according to the value of what was stolen, and the penalties can also vary.
Felony theft representation: theft felony-level will, in most cases, depend on the property value, the nature of the crime, and the actions played during the activity. In cases of valuable properties, felony charges are applied when the stolen property has a value of $1000 or more.
