Mississippi Criminal Defense Attorney and Lawyer for Theft
A theft charge can be either a felony, grand larceny, or a misdemeanor, petit larceny, depending upon the value of the property taken. Larceny is the unlawful taking and carrying away of someone else’s personal property with the intent to deprive the possessor of it permanently.
If you or someone you know is charged with theft, it is critical that a trained and competent Theft Attorney be retained in order to go to the scene and take photographs, interview witnesses, gather evidence, conduct tests, and conduct other important actions, all of which could play a vital role in defending theft charges. Early theft defense work cannot be underestimated.
Possible defenses against theft charges can include proof that the property was not taken, proof that there was no intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property, proof that the owner authorized the person charged with theft to take the property, proof that the value of the property is not sufficient to sustain a grand larceny charge, and factually proving innocence.
Anything you say can be used against you in court. Do not discuss the matter with any person until you’ve talked to the Law Offices of Attorney John R. Reeves, P.C., an informed Mississippi Criminal Defense Attorney and Lawyer for Theft.
