Developing Theft Charges and Court Cases
Theft crimes can encompass a number of crimes and situations. Everything from shoplifting, to credit card fraud, to embezzlement may be considered theft crimes. During the investigation, you may be asked questions about your situation, including your habits, and how you came into possession of items. Though you may feel compelled to answer law enforcement officer questions, you can opt for professional representation instead.
Once a prosecuting attorney has a case put together, they can file charges against you for any crime you are suspected of. Criminal charges are only a formal accusation that you committed a theft crime. From there, the legal process goes into place, which can include a jury trial.
