Theft is an umbrella term for many different types of theft-related crimes. These crimes are both misdemeanors and felonies, each with their own unique Penal Codes and penalties for convictions. At Zarabi Law, we have experience defending clients accused of theft crimes including:
- Petty theft
- Grand theft
- Receipt of stolen property
- Grand theft auto
- Grand theft firearm
- Theft of U.S. mail
Being convicted on a theft charge can have a very negative impact on your life. Depending on the charge, you could be facing jail time, fines and probation. Convictions also may result in:
- Loss of state licensing
- Inability to obtain certain licenses or certifications
- Inability to obtain a Visa or become naturalized
- Difficulty obtaining employment
- Denial of financial aid, grants, and educational assistance
As you can imagine, these consequences can be life-changing.
How to Fight a Theft Crime Charge
Fortunately, there is hope for fighting a theft charge in California. At Zarabi Law, we begin every theft defense case with a careful review of your situation. We question whether the prosecution has enough evidence to convict you. We challenge the prosecution’s evidence and seek to have the charges dropped. When the evidence is compelling, we work to negotiate a plea bargain or lesser charges.
Throughout the criminal justice process, the team at Zarabi Law makes sure that your legal rights are upheld. Even if you made a mistake, you don’t deserve for your life to be uprooted. You deserve a strong defense of your legal rights that will ensure the best, most fair outcome possible.
