Crimes involving theft can take on many forms. It can include:
These crimes all involve one person intentionally defrauding a person for their own particular gain. For instance, writing a fake check in order to pay for groceries could result in the felony charges of forgery and passing a bad check. It becomes especially serious if this bad check is actually for thousands of dollars. And if a person has previous convictions involving theft or fraud, the penalties will be greatly enhanced. Therefore it is important to find an attorney who can keep these charges off your record. By aggressively fighting the first theft charge, you can prevent serious problems down that road that may come from pleading guilty or representing yourself.
These charges can also have an effect on a person if they are involved in a career that requires access to sensitive financial information. If a person is convicted of one of these crimes, it will likely prevent them from working in banks, law firms, financial institutions, or other jobs where a high degree of trust is necessarily placed in the person.
