Understanding the Seriousness of Theft Charges
If you’ve been accused of stealing property, you could be facing very serious criminal charges. Our Columbus theft crime lawyers are experienced at defending people against misdemeanor and felony theft-related charges.
These charges include:
- Check fraud (also known as passing bad checks)
Even if you have no prior offenses on your criminal record, you could be charged with a felony carrying significant jail or prison time if you are accused of stealing more than $500.00.
Many of these charges are brought based on accusations of theft in the workplace, which often comes under the heading of embezzlement. Young people are also often accused of theft of many different types of circumstances.
Taking the Right Steps to Fight Long-Term Consequences
One of the major consequences of a criminal conviction for theft or embezzlement is a criminal record. Having a property crime on your record could affect your ability to obtain employment in the future.
If you are convicted of a property crime, you may be required to pay restitution, which can be a serious problem if you are currently unable to pay the amount ordered. Plymale & Dingus has over 70 years of experience and will work diligently to fight these and other serious consequences in your criminal case. We will explore all opportunities for defending you against such charges.
