Theft, Larceny And Embezzlement Charges
The long-term consequences of a theft conviction can be far more serious than jail time or a fine. If you plead guilty, you will end up with a criminal record. This could affect you any time you apply for a job, graduate school, a professional license or even a loan.
At Lutins & Pilgreen, PC, in Roanoke, Virginia, our job is to keep a one-time mistake from becoming a criminal record. We offer a initial consultation to discuss your case. We represent high school and college students, as well as adults.
Protecting Your Future
Our lawyers are experienced at handling all types of theft charges, including:
- Credit card fraud
Theft is considered a crime of dishonesty. It is the type of crime that could cause a future employer to shy away from hiring you. Robbery and burglary are considered crimes against people and are charged as felonies. If you plead guilty or are found guilty in court, you would be a felon. You could lose civil rights that are important to you, such as the right to own a firearm.
When your future is on the line, it’s important to put your case in the hands of an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. In many cases, our lawyers are able to resolve theft charges without the stigma of a conviction.
