Theft Crimes There's Always a Way

Theft Crime Attorney in Flagstaff

Experienced Defense for Property Crimes in Coconino County

The United States values a variety of rights, including life, liberty, and property. Thus, when a property is unlawfully deprived of one person by another, the justice system does not treat these matters lightly. While not all theft crimes are violent, all theft crimes have the potential to be punished as if they were.

As a former prosecutor and magistrate judge, our Flagstaff theft crime attorney is well aware that you could face the maximum sentence for your alleged incident. Depending on the circumstances, theft crimes can be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies. This means that aspects of your case, such as the value of the property taken and how it was taken, will play a crucial role in your final sentencing. Thus, having an aggressive advocate on your side can make all the difference in your case. At The Zickerman Law Office, PLLC, our determined Flagstaff theft crime attorney commits to tirelessly fighting for your rights.

Types of Theft Crimes We Defend Against

Regardless of how severe your accusation is, our criminal defense lawyer has learned from experience that the prosecution can be brutal when attacking defendants charged with any type of theft. Luckily, our team has the competence needed to fight a wide range of theft crimes, including:

  • Burglary
  • Theft
  • Trespassing
  • Shoplifting

These theft crimes come with harsh punishments if convicted. In addition to facing possible jail time and court fees, a judge may also order you to pay restitution, which can seriously impede your financial plans for the future. However, we can fight those restitution orders and reduce your possible financial penalties so that you can walk away from your case without sacrificing your hard-earned money.

What Aspects Are Needed To Prove Theft?

There are several aspects that the prosecution must prove to secure a conviction, such as:

  • The property was taken.
  • The identity of the rightful property owner.
  • The property value.
  • The identity of the person who took the property
  • Asserting that the person who took the property had no legal right to it.

The prosecution is responsible for proving each of these points, and if they are unsuccessful in doing so, the defendant is unlikely to be convicted. Attorney Adam Zickerman was a former prosecutor, meaning he knows how the opposition thinks and has the skill to help represent you effectively.

How Long Do You Go to Jail for Theft?

In Arizona, the length of jail time you can face for theft largely depends on the classification of the theft offense. For example, if you are convicted of Class 2 felony theft, the maximum sentence is 35 years. However, if convicted of Class 2 misdemeanor (petty) theft, you can face up to six months in jail.

Theft Crime Classifications in Arizona
