Aggressive Theft Defense From An Experienced Attorney
Anytime something is taken from someone without permission, it is considered theft. There are varying degrees of theft, but if someone decides to press charges against you for the property or money taken, you may be facing serious consequences. If you have been accused of or charged with theft, it is time to talk to a lawyer.
At The Law Office of John Alt, I am dedicated to helping my clients fight for their rights, family and freedom. As a former superior court magistrate judge, I understand the complexities of theft cases. I work tirelessly to ensure my clients understand what they are facing and their options. Whether you are facing probation and restitution for petty theft or shoplifting, or are facing grand larceny and serious prison time, I use my tenacity and skill to fight for you.
When the amount of money or value of the property is from $750 to $50,000, you are facing a level 6 felony. $750 may not seem like very much for facing such a serious charge, and indeed it isn’t. However, it is important to note this since the consequences for a felony theft conviction include between six months and two and a half years in prison, as well as thousands of dollars in fines and potential restitution to the victim of the theft.
Experience teaches that many property crimes are committed by individuals with drug or alcohol problems. If this is your case, I can have your case screened, with your permission, to determine your eligibility for drug treatment court. In Marion County and several other counties, the successful completion of drug treatment court results in the dismissal of all charges against the defendant.
