If you have been arrested or accused of a theft crime, you should act immediately to meet with a Troy criminal defense attorney. The sooner you have a strong legal advocate on your side, the better. At the Law Office of John N. Elliott, we work quickly to investigate the details of your case, look at all the evidence, and explore your legal options. Our top priority is to help you prevent a conviction and the related consequences, such as time in jail or a permanent criminal record. We want to ensure that you are not wrongfully convicted as a result of misleading evidence, mistaken identity, or an improper arrest.
There is a wide range of offenses which fall under the category of theft crimes. In order to reach a conviction, there are several factors which the prosecution must be able to prove. This includes proving that you unlawfully removed property from another with the intention to deprive them and that you did not have consent from the owner to take the property.

Theft crimes can be charged as misdemeanors and felonies, depending on the nature of the alleged crime and the value of the items which were allegedly taken. Both misdemeanors and felonies can carry harmful, heavy consequences, which is why hiring a Troy criminal defense attorney is important. The first step after you have been arrested is to consult with a lawyer who can investigate your charges and advocate for your rights.
