Theft Attorney

When you willfully take something that isn’t yours from another person, whether it is money or property or assets, the act is called “theft.” This is a very serious offense, and can come with some heavy consequences if you are caught and convicted. If you have been charged with theft in Miami, you need a skilled Miami criminal lawyer without delay.

Over the years, theft has come to take many forms beyond simple robbery. The advent of the internet has led to a rise in intellectual theft crimes like credit card fraud and embezzlement. One thing that has not changed, however, is how severe the consequences for theft can be if you are caught. Depending on the circumstances and the value of what was stolen, theft can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. While a misdemeanor may warrant punishment of up to a year in jail, a felony such as armed robbery could mean a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.

Unfortunately, the rise of technology also opens the door for glitches and mistakes that can lead to terrible misunderstandings. An accounting or banking error can appear to be embezzlement or fraud. Spyware or other computer viruses can divert unwanted and illegal material onto your computer without you knowing. You shouldn’t be held responsible for a simple mistake, and a skilled Miami criminal lawyer can help.
