Understanding How To Defend Against Grand Theft Charges

Are you accused of stealing something? What is the value of the item(s)?

Taking money or property valued at $400 or more can be charged as grand theft. Fighting your charge of grand theft is urgent for multiple reasons. If you are accused of shoplifting, embezzlement, or stealing a car, you may face felony charges.

Just because no violence or weapon was used, don't think the charges are not serious. Grand theft charges may be brought in cases of theft of a firearm, a valuable dog, or certain livestock.

Finding A Defense That Meets Your Unique Needs

A felony conviction will put you in state prison for a year or more. This is not a slap on the wrist. County jail may not be an option for you, and state prison is no picnic. In addition, the conviction may count as a "strike" toward your "three-strikes" and serious prison time. Finally, your ability to get a job, rent an apartment or even vote may be limited if you are a convicted felon.

Grand theft charges are hard to fight. If you are found in possession of property that is not yours, that may be strong evidence against you. Was there a security camera that recorded the theft? Did store personnel or other witnesses see the theft?
