Defending You on Theft Crime Charges in Edmonds

Theft and related offenses such as embezzlement, shoplifting or robbery are considered "crimes of dishonesty," and a conviction for such an offense can have a devastating effect on your future. Not only could you be facing consequences such as jail or prison, fines and probation, but you would additionally have a mark on your criminal record which could cause you significant problems-many landlords and employers refuse to accept an application from an individual who has been convicted of theft.

Edmonds Theft Crime Penalties

The sentence you could receive if you are convicted of theft depends on several circumstances, such as the value of the stolen items. If the stolen goods are valued at up to $750, you can be charged with a gross misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and $5,000 in fines, while if the property is valued at over $5,000, you can be charged with a Class B felony, punishable by ten years in prison and a $20,000 fine. The nature of the specific offense will also be a factor, whether you are charged with a misdemeanor such as shoplifting or a felony such as robbery or burglary, as well as whether you are accused of carrying a deadly weapon at the time of the offense.
